Sheriff: K-9 helps find wanted man who fled from deputies
Brandon Leigh Brisco, 31, of Roseburg.

ROSEBURG, Ore. -- After leading deputies on a chase in the Green District early Sunday morning, officials say a Roseburg police K-9 nabbed a wanted man.

The Sheriff's office says at about 12:20 am, deputies found Brandon Leigh Brisco, 31, sitting in a Volkswagen Jetta in the Ray's Food Place parking lot on Carnes Road.

Deputies knew Brisco had warrants for parole violation and failing to register as a sex offender, and tried to take him into custody.

Authorities say Brisco resisted arrest and managed to drive out of the parking lot.

Deputies say Brisco headed north on Carnes Road at speeds of about 70 miles per hour before he lost control of his car and hit a guardrail at the intersection of Carnes and Happy Valley.

Brisco took off on foot after crashing.

Authorities say deputies, along with officers from Winston and Roseburg set up a perimeter and brought in a Roseburg police K-9.

The dog found Brisco hiding in some tall grass not far from the crash and was taken into custody.

Authorities say Brisco was lodged in the Douglas County Jail, charged by the Sheriff's office with attempt to elude, third degree escape and hit and run, along with several other charges.
