Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – A wanted person, who ran from a rollover crash scene, was apprehended as a result of K9 Majlo & Officer Barth’s tracking abilities. On Tuesday, June 18, 2019, around 12:30 p.m. officers responded to Fescue Drive after it was reported a car rolled over. Officers arrived to find that the only occupant, the driver, had run into nearby woods. Officer Barth, along with Majlo, quickly responded to the scene to begin a track on the suspect’s scent.
Majlo quickly picked up the scent and began to track. Ultimately the suspect, 31-year-old Gary Hasty, Jr. of Lebanon, was located deep into a wooded area and apprehended.
“Officer Barth and Majlo are a great team who continue to deliver results that enhance the safety of our community,” stated Chief James Hambrick. “This is just one of many examples where their skills have allowed our officers to quickly apprehend wanted subjects who run and attempt to evade arrest.”
Medics transported Hasty to a nearby hospital to be treated for injuries sustained in the crash. When he was released, Hasty was booked into the Wilson County Jail, charged with Theft of Property, Leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Crash, and Driving on a Revoked Drivers License. He was also wanted out of Wilson County for a probation violation.
