K9 Mac captures suspect in Clackamas County
A driver trying to elude Clackamas County Sheriff's Office deputies was arrested after a pursuit near Colton on Saturday afternoon.
Adam Torney was lodged in the Clackamas County Jail in numerous charges, including a parole violation.
According to the CCSO, at about 1:30 p.m. on July 8, a deputy attempted to stop a white GMC SUV for traffic violations in the 23700 block of South Highway 211, which is in the unincorporated area of Clackamas County east of Colton. The driver did not stop and sped away from the deputy in an attempt to escape.
The pursuit ended on a logging road near South Horner Road and South Hillockburn Road when Torney stopped his vehicle and ran into the woods on foot along with a passenger. Deputies later learned Torney was likely armed with a firearm when he fled from the vehicle.
Deputies contained the area where Torney was last seen Oregon City Police Officer Horton and K9 Mac searched the area. The CCSO Aviation Unit also assisted in the search.
When the aviation unit led Horton and Mac to an area of interest, Mac found Torney hiding at the base of a tree. He was captured by Mac and arrested by CCSO deputies.
The CCSO would like to thank Horton and Mac in addition to the Oregon State Police for their assistance.
