AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) — A father and son are charged with breaking and entering after a pursuit with the help of a K9 in Augusta County over the weekend.
According to the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called out to the Annex area at 9:52 p.m. on Friday night for a report of a home alarm in the 1700 block of Balsley Rd.
That’s just a little ways off Route 254.
When deputies arrived to the scene, they say a suspect fled on foot into a wooded area.
Investigators determined that at least one person had forced entry into the home through a window, and the deputy on scene called for help from an Augusta County K9 deputy to track the suspect into the woods.
With the help of K9 Arko, deputies tracked 21-year-old Dallas Wayne Warren to a nearby home, from which he again ran. But he didn’t get far and was taken into custody.
As the investigation continued, deputies later arrested Dallas’ father, 48-year-old Brian Allen Warren.
Dallas Warren is charged with breaking and entering and fleeing from law enforcement. Brian Warren is charged with breaking and entering.
Both men have Staunton addresses.
“I am proud of the teamwork displayed in this apprehension between Patrol Deputies and our K-9 unit,” said Sheriff Donald Smith. “K9 Arko was able to track the suspect for approximately a mile, where he surrendered and was taken into custody by perimeter deputies”.
