REDDING, Calif. - A K-9 was used to force a wanted man to surrender in Redding on Sept. 25.

Redding authorities say they were patrolling in the area of Hilltop Drive around 7:30 p.m. when they saw two suspicious men in the parking lot of Quality Inn.

When they saw the officers, the two men attempted to flee though one was quickly apprehended. This man was identified as Ricky Manuel Jaramillo who was on felony probation and was in possession of drug paraphernalia.

The second man, police say, fled into a motel room where he attempted to hide from officers. In a record check, the man, identified as Jarrod Christopher Skinner, had multiple warrants.

Officers surrounded the room and attempted to negotiate Skinner's surrender for about 20 minutes and when he refused to exit, K-9 Hank arrived.

Skinner heard the K-9 barking and surrendered to officers with no additional force.

Skinner was booked on a charge of resisting arrest, along with his outstanding warrants. Jaramillo was booked on a probation violation.

"K9s are sometimes used to forcefully take suspects into custody, but often their presence alone will convince suspects to surrender peacefully, preventing injury to suspects and officers alike," said Redding Police.
