BURNEY, Calif - A man has been arrested after Shasta County Sheriff’s Office K9 “Blitz” tracked down a suspect who ran on foot during a traffic stop.

According to SCSO, this happened just after noon on Saturday at Highway 299E just west of Highway 89 in the rural area of Burney.

SCSO officials said that a California Highway Patrol officer initiated a traffic enforcement stop and the male suspect left the vehicle and fled, leaving the female driver behind so he could hide into a wooded area.

The woman provided the CHP officer with the suspect’s fake name as “Jeffrey Brown,” during the search, authorities revealed that Brown had five outstanding warrants, three of them were a felony, said the SCSO.

Based on the information of the suspect, CHP called for assistance by the SCSO K9 unit where Deputy Estes and K9 “Blitz” were able to track down the suspect based on the gray sweatshirt he left behind, according to SCSO.

K9 “Blitz” tracked the suspect at about eight-tenths of a mile and ended at a large lava rock wall, according to SCSO.

Officials said it took several minutes to locate the suspect, but “Blitz” was able to apprehend the suspect inside a narrow opening between two large boulders.

After deputies put the suspect in handcuffs, authorities were able to positively identify him as Allan Michael Darling, 28, of Redding, said the SCSO.

Darling was found to be on Post Release Community Supervision, his prior arrests consisted of:

• Felony vehicle evading
• Burglary
• Stolen vehicle
• Possession of stolen property
• Possession of controlled substances
• Resisting arrest
• Robbery

Darling was taken to Mercy Medical Center for injuries he sustained during the K9 apprehension but later booked into the Shasta County Jail for PRCS violation and resisting arrest.
