Saddler Rd., CCSO release – On April 25th, 2019 at about 12:52 PM, Deputies with the Coos County Sheriff’s Office responded to 64266 Saddler Rd. for a burglary in progress. The 78 year old victim of the burglary said he’d seen a man wearing a cammo jacket, blue sweatshirt, brown boots and a face mask run out the back door of his house. The man reportedly ran down a gravel road close to the house, and then into some woods in the area. A perimeter was hastily set, and K9 Odin was called in to track the suspect. For approximately 30 minutes the tracking team searched the surrounding brush for the man. The trail led them onto Lowell Ln. While tracking, the team identified a man matching the description walking behind a house away from Deputies with a hood on. Deputies announced themselves and told the man to stop. The man began running and hopping over fences in an attempt to get away. A short foot pursuit ensued, and at the conclusion of this pursuit, the suspect who was identified as 40 year old Joseph T. Russell, began fighting with Deputies. Mr. Russell also reportedly kicked K9 officer Odin in the snout. Mr. Russell was ultimately taken into custody on the charges of Burglary I, attempted Theft II, 2 counts of Resisting Arrest, 2 counts of Interfering with a Peace Officer, 1 count of Interfering with Law Enforcement animal, as well as a warrant for his arrest, and a Probation Violation. Coos County Deputies had also recently issued Probable Cause and an Attempt to Locate for Mr. Russell after determining he was the primary suspect in another case that involved separate charges of Burglary II, Theft I and Theft II from a construction site. He was transported to the Coos County Jail where he was lodged.
