COPS TV | Alec the Grouch | Deputy John Roedding

Deputy John Roedding - Lee County Sheriff's Office

While assisting a fellow deputy with a traffic stop, Deputy Roedding of the Lee County Sheriff's Office hears a radio call that alerts him to another deputy who has just spotted a wanted man running through some backyards in a nearby neighborhood. The suspect is believed to be a man who had fled from a felony traffic stop several days earlier. Deputy Mark Bonora and his K-9 partner, Eli, arrive and initiate a search for the fleeing suspect through the use of scent tracking. Eli [eventually or quickly?] hits on a garbage can behind someone's home. Deputy Roedding tips over the garbage can, spilling its contents and revealing the wanted suspect. Eli pulls the suspect out for the deputies to place safely in custody. The suspect explains to Deputy Roedding that he fled because he is turning 21 soon, and "you only turn 21 once." He continues to explain that he did not want to waste his life sitting in jail. On top of everything, marijuana is found among the suspect's belongings. Deputies transport him to jail for the misdemeanor warrant, resisting arrest, and for marijuana possession.
