Police K9 “Jedi” Hunts Jail Escapee Hiding In Industrial Warehouse.

“Good Doggie. Gooooooood Doggie.”

This is a cool video of a police K-9 dog searching for and finding a suspect that had escaped police custody and was hiding in a warehouse / industrial building.

Spoiler alert: The dog gets his man.

On May 2, 2018 Seattle Police Officer Anthony Ducre responded to an industrial area in Kent, Washington to assist Kent Police Department with their search for Giovanni Dashawn Herrin, who had just escaped from Kent County Jail and was thought to be hiding in an industrial warehouse.

Less than two months after this incident, Herrin was arrested and charged with the murder of Karyme Barreto-Sabalza, his girlfriend of a few months. Herrin was accused of luring Barreto-Sabalza into a wooded area of a Kent park on June 16, 2018, shooting her once in the head at close range, taking her purse and cell phone, and then using her car to take himself to an ATM, where he helped himself to money from her bank account.

Not long after his murder arrest, Herrin was secured to a hospital bed in the emergency room of Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center. It was the third time in a row Herrin had complained of feeling ill due to bad drugs he allegedly ingested behind bars, and two corrections officers were assigned to keep watch over the alleged murderer.

According to an incident report, when one guard went to use the restroom and the other “became distracted for approximately 10 to 15 seconds,” the then-19-year-old escaped from his restraints and left the hospital.

The escape ended when two officers from King County Jail located Herrin on Eighth Avenue and Yesler Way and shot Herrin in the shoulder.

Herrin is currently a resident of King County Correctional Facility on charges of homicide, attempt to elude, first degree murder, escape, robbery, theft, and criminal trespass.
