Officer Seth Kinney and K9 Partner Oso nabs two assault suspects in four days.

Between Oct. 12 and Oct. 16, Arlington Police Department's K9 Oso and handler Officer Seth Kinney were called upon to track and catch two different assault suspects. In both cases, K9 Oso and Officer Kinney successfully apprehended the suspect.

K9 Oso caught his first suspect ever on Oct. 12, when called upon by the Marysville Police Department for assistance to track a violent suspect from an assault 2nd degree domestic violence incident. The suspect was violating a restraining order at the time that he assaulted the victim. The suspect then ran from the scene into a wooded area behind the home. Multiple K9 announcements were made and the suspect refused to surrender. Oso tracked and located the suspect, who was taken into custody without incident.

On Oct. 17, Oso and Officer Kinney were again called upon to track and locate a suspect involved in an assault incident, this time in Arlington. The suspect assaulted the victim at a business in the 200 block of S. Olympic Ave. The suspect ran from the scene into a wooded area behind the home. Oso tracked and located the suspect, who was taken into custody without incident and booked in to Snohomish County Jail.

Oso is dually trained to detect people and illegal drugs. He is a German Shepherd first deployed as a drug detection dog by the City of Arlington in March 2015. Oso received his certification to track people in March 2016.
