Lincoln Police K9 tracks down suspect with shank, drugs

Lincoln Police arrested 44-year-old Michael Anderson after he ran from police Saturday night. 

Officer Angela Sands said an officer saw Anderson driving an SUV with fake license plates near 9th and D and tried to pull him over. 

Anderson ditched the car and starting running, Sands said.

K-9 unit Diesel  was called and tracked Anderson to a shed where he complied with police and was arrested. Sands said he told officers he didn’t want to be bitten by the dog.

He faces three felony charges- possession of a controlled substance, possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person and operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrested. He was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to comply, fictitious license plates, no valid registration and no operators permit.
