When a woman allegedly began barking in the direction of a police dog that was on duty, and after her identity was discovered she was taken into custody by the officers working at the scene.
A woman who resides in Lafayette, Indiana, had reportedly stepped out of her house on Tuesday and witnessed a traffic stop in progress. A K9 was at the scene and in the process of checking the vehicle that had been pulled over when the woman began to bark at the police dog.
The officers turned to see where the noise was coming from and they believed that the woman resembled a suspect that had more than one active warrant for her arrest.
The woman allegedly returned to her dwelling before the authorities were able to confront her, and they were issued a search warrant granting them permission to go inside of the residence.
When they were reportedly given the go-ahead the officers entered the woman’s home and identified her as 20-year-old Kiana Champagne Fletcher, confirming their suspicions that she was the suspect for whom the warrants were issued.
While they were there the officers searched the residence and have alleged that they discovered methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, and they placed Fletcher under arrest.
Fletcher was booked, and in addition to the infractions regarding the two warrants for her arrest, she may also face charges for suspicion of possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a common nuisance.
