A wanted Stafford man who was apprehended by K-9 Titan back in 2020, was reacquainted with the dog as he tried to flee from a residence on Saturday evening.

On November 11th at 6:32 p.m. deputies responded to a breaking and entering call on Quarry Road. They arrived to find signs of forced entry to the home. The suspect was identified as Joshua Sims, 36, who was already wanted for threats to bomb and a probation violation. Deputies believed Sims was still in the residence and could be armed, so a perimeter was established around the home. As deputies attempted to call Sims out of the home, he bolted out of the rear door toward Sergeant B.U. Demirci and K-9 Titan.

Sims made it to the fence line, but no further. K-9 Titan completed the apprehension and Sims was taken into custody. Sims received treatment for the bite at the hospital and was subsequently charged with obstruction of justice, breaking and entering, and two counts of destruction of property. The outstanding warrants were also served and he was held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.

Excellent work by the deputies and K-9 Titan to arrest this suspect.
