The Pulaski County Sheriff’s K9 unit was instrumental in capturing a wanted felon.
On Friday, Feb. 27, deputies from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department served an arrest warrant after receiving information that Donald Ray Fitch, 47, from Kentucky was living at a home south of Denham. When officers knocked on the door, Fitch refused to answer to police. According to a press release, officers gained entry into the home and Fitch surrendered when K9 Gil was deployed. Police say Fitch was found in a bedroom.
Fitch was wanted out of Kentucky on charges of assault on a police officer, menacing, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest. He is in the Pulaski County Jail awaiting extradition to Kentucky.
