At about 12:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 15, 2014, Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and Milwaukie Police K9 teams were conducting weekly narcotics training in Milwaukie.
While a couple of the dogs were actively searching for training aids inside the building, a woman -- later identified as Nancy Pauline Kelly, 33 -- reportedly walked into the parking lot where the patrol cars were parked. She was then observed rummaging around in some bushes before walking over to one of the marked patrol cars and looking inside the window.
Because of this unusual behavior, deputies made contact -- and found out Ms. Kelly had an active warrant for her arrest out of Clackamas County for failing to appear on a Criminal Trespass II charge.
Ms. Kelly was arrested and transported to Clackamas County Jail on the warrant.
"Usually our police dogs are the ones who find the 'bad guys,'" said Sgt. Bradley O'Neil, who was on-scene training with his K9 deputy Nero (photos linked above). "It's not every day I see the 'bad guys' seeking out the police dogs."
