Major David Harper of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office reports that on Monday, May 21, 2018 at 1:53 pm, deputies responded to an address located on NE Bramble Trail in an attempt to locate and arrest Calvin Johnson for an active Bond Revocation arrest warrant.

Upon arrival deputies made contact with two juveniles who initially told the deputies that Johnson was not at the location. After further questioning regarding Johnson the juveniles admitted to the deputies that Johnson had seen them coming and fled into the woods on foot prior to their arrival.

Sergeant Jarrod Lauth deployed canine Miso to track Johnson while other deputies established a perimeter. Canine Miso quickly located the scent trail and began to track Johnson in the direction of a field. As canine Miso tracked closer to the field perimeter deputies spotted Johnson running across the field.

Canine Miso was released in attempt to apprehend Johnson, however Johnson climbed up a tree to avoid canine Miso. Deputies were able to take Johnson into custody from the tree without further incident.
