K9 Baron drowned while apprehending a suspect wanted for felony narcotics distribution.

The subject had fled on foot after deputies responded to a disturbance at a home on Twin Aspen Circle. K9 Baron and his handler were tracking the man when they came upon a fence. His handler lifted him over the fence, and as the handler went over the fence she heard K9 Baron engage the suspect. She located Baron a short time later in a body of water. It is believed that the man intentionally drowned Baron during the Baron's apprehension.

The subject continued to flee but turned himself in the following day.

K9 Baron had served with the St. John's County Sheriff's Office for 1-1/2 years and conducted tracking and apprehension missions.

K-9 Baron, I rode in the LEU Ruff Ride in your honor. Thanks for being the best dog you could be. I am sure you will meet all of us at the gate someday. Look for Oakley at the bridge.
Thank you for your service.
