Atta boy, Winton! Yesterday in Frostproof, Jimmie Balfour decided to flee on foot from a traffic crash. Jimmie must not be a fan of our FB page, because everyone here knows that our K9s find people.
Master Deputy Ard let Winton take a whiff of the driver’s seat, and then Winton started to track! His nose led him through an orange grove, and into a neighborhood, across Stewart, then North Ave, then Harrell. Winton went right to a house on Harrell Ave and told Ard, “He’s in here.”
Sure enough, Jimmie was in there, hiding. He came out and was taken to jail, for driving while license suspended, fleeing the scene, and resisting arrest.
