News Release from Lane Co. Sheriff’s Office

Posted on FlashAlert: March 6th, 2023 4:00 PM

On 03/01/2023 just prior to 6:00pm, the Lane County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Gettings Creek Rest Area on Interstate 5 to assist the Springfield Police Department in locating a stalking suspect.  The suspect, 48-year-old Shawn Tull, had fled from his car and disappeared somewhere at the rest area.

Deputy Luke Thomas and his K9 partner, Bruno, arrived to assist with the search.  Bruno immediately began tracking Tull’s scent past the rest area buildings, over a fence, and onto a trail through thick brush and located him hiding in thick blackberry bushes.  Tull was taken into custody without further incident.

Deputy Thomas and Bruno are the newest K9 team at the Lane County Sheriff’s Office.  They were certified and officially began working together in the beginning of February.

The Lane County Sheriff’s Office K9 program is funded almost entirely through donations from citizens and local businesses. These funds go directly towards purchasing the K9s, training, necessary equipment, food, medical care, and other expenses related to the care of our K9 partners.

Information about the Lane County Sheriff K9 Team and how to donate can be found at:
