    BREMERTON, Wash. - A K-9 unit with the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office helped deputies track down a man who had multiple warrants out for his arrest. 

    Officials said the 33-year-old man ran from officers in East Bremerton around 2 a.m. Tuesday. 

    Deputies said the man had arrest warrants issued for second-degree domestic violence assault, burglary and for a violation of a no contact order. 

    K-9 Heiko and his handler, Deputy Baker, located the man hiding in a stairwell at an apartment complex after an hour of searching, officials said.  

    “As K-9 Heiko went in for the arrest, the suspect yelled out he was giving up,” deputies wrote on Facebook. 

    The Sheriff’s Office did not identify the 33-year-old man.
