    We caught someone trying to steal some items at my house a couple of months back. The individual dropped the items while running in the woods and so we recovered the items. A Priceville officer responded and later a Morgan County officer showed up with a K9. I showed him where the individual ran into the woods thinking he was going to release the K9 to track down the individual. The Morgan County K9 officer talked to the Priceville officer and then he returned to his car and drove off. This happened around 10:30 PM and since it was dark outside, I could not give a description of the individual because the individual was wearing dark clothes. So, do not ask me to support the Morgan County K9 units, I WILL NOT !!!!
