K-9 Deputy Grizzly locates firearm in felony arrest

Posted: Updated:
MATTAWA, Wash. -

In the early morning of June 13, Grant Count Sheriff's Office K-9 team Deputies De La Rosa and Grizzly helped the Mattawa Police Department, Royal City Police Department, and Grant County Sheriff’s Office after law enforcement received a call about an intoxicated man making death threats and shooting outside a Mattawa home.

When Grant County Sheriff's Deputies arrived just past midnight, the suspect had already fled on foot and believed to still be armed. Homes in the immediate vicinity were evacuated and searched but the suspect was not located inside the homes.

Witnesses told law enforcement that one round had been fired by the suspect when making threats outside a residence. The suspect was later found passed out near a chicken coup in the yard of another nearby home. He was arrested, but officers and deputies did not find the gun. K-9 Grizzly was then sent to find the weapon and communicated to his partner, by pawing in some sand near the chicken coup, that he had found it. Located with the weapon was also spent ammunition.

The suspect, 40-year-old Reymundo Hernandez of Mattawa, was taken to Grant County jail and charged with felony harassment and assault in the first degree.

“Only recently back on the job after recovering from surgery, I think we can say Grizz is feeling much better. It’s great to have him back,” Sheriff Tom Jones said.
