A Norman Park man was apprehended with the help of a Moultrie Police K-9 early Tuesday morning.

Adrian Jackson, 28, of 4558 Highway 319 N. in Norman Park, was charged with duty to obey an officer.

Moultrie police officers were at Knuck McCrary Park on Magnolia Lane about a suspicious vehicle there at 1:18 a.m. Tuesday. The vehicle and its occupant were allowed to leave, but officers heard sticks breaking nearby and saw two black males fleeing the area.

The officers began to chase after the two men on foot, but they were a significant distance away. One of the officers got his K-9 from his patrol car, and the dog was sent into the woods along with the officers to search for the two men. The K-9 was off its leash but remained close to the officers during the foot pursuit, police said.

After a short time, one of the men, identified as Jackson, was found lying on his back in the woods and was placed under arrest. The second man, however, was not found after officers lost sight of him. Jackson was then taken to Colquitt County Jail.
