by Garland and had knowledge tht he was driving on revoked

unattended in the Amoco parking lot off U.S. Highway 19E.
The officer called for backup so he could go in and check
the store. A backup officer arrived about 10 minutes later
and while Deputy Buck was giving him a description of Garland,
the officers were advised that he was hiding in a dumpster

Garland was observed running across Highway 19E. Garland was
told to stop several times and that a K-9 unit would be used
to track and apprehend him if he did not. CCSD Deputy Sarah
Ryan and K-9 Sgt. Kabor arrived on the scene and Sgt. Kabor
was deployed to track Garland, who was found lying face down
in a thicket with his hands under his body. He was ordered
to surrender and show his hands. When he did not, Sgt. Kabor
was commanded to apprehend him. He was taken into custody
without further incident. Upon inventory of Garland's vehicle,
