Massachusetts State Police K-9 locates suspect who fled vehicle

Scully the K9

 

On Tuesday September 27th around 9:00 p.m., Trooper Ryan Walczak of the Troop D Community Action Team (CAT) was on patrol in the city of Brockton when he observed a vehicle that had a suspended registration.  Trooper Walczak attempted to stop the vehicle but it fled in an extremely erratic and dangerous manner.  For safety reasons, Trooper Walczak did not pursue the vehicle.  A short time later, Trooper Walczak observed the vehicle parked sideways on a nearby street.  The vehicle was unoccupied and still running, backup was requested.  Trooper Jason Trout also of the Troop D Community Action Team and Trooper Bill McSweeney of the K9 Unit responded.  Trooper McSweeney deployed K9 Scully on a track from the vehicle.  Scully tracked a short distance and located the female driver hiding in a bush.  The woman was taken into custody.  A subsequent investigation revealed the woman was under the influence of drugs, and also had four warrants for her arrest.  She was also charged with failing to stop for police, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license and a suspended registration.
