Williams County Sheriff’s Deputy Ken Jacob and his Dutch-German shepherd K9 partner Ruin make the world a safer place just by being in it.
At 2:20 p.m. Tuesday, the Sheriff’s Office responded to a tip reporting a fugitive at 210 Walnut St., Pulaski. The suspect was identified as Jason D. Dennis, 37, of Bryan, who was wanted for failure to appear in Bryan Municipal Court for a parole violation hearing.
When a deputy attempted to serve the warrant, Dennis fled from the residence.
Jacob and Ruin arrived at 2:38 p.m. and prepared to track Dennis’ scent trail when found his footprints leading to the truck where he was hiding. Dennis surrendered without incident before Ruin was released. He was arrested and transported to the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio where he remains in custody.
Municipal Court records show that Dennis was last arrested March 16, 2020, during a domestic dispute when he drove through a private property fence in the 800 block of Noble Drive. He was charged with domestic violence, two temporary protection order violations, criminal damaging, fleeing and eluding, failure to comply and falsification. In 2017, he was arrested and charged with criminal damaging for tampering with a Bryan Municipal Utilities’ meter to obtain 1,108 kilowatt hours of electricity. That same year he was charged with trespassing at the Colonial Manor (now the Bryan Inn), 924 E. High St.
