TRINITY COUNTY, TX (KTRE) – A man is in custody in Trinity County after K9s helped him locate him as he fled into the woods to escape arrest.
The suspect, whom Trinity County Sheriff Woody Wallace identified as Rojae Deaion Kizzee, is accused of breaking into a woman’s home on Ida Street in Trinity. She woke up to see Kizzee attempting to steal her dog, Wallace said, and she began to push him away. He fired several shots, but no one was injured. She removed her mask and recognized him in previous interactions.
Wallace said the house had plenty of cameras inside, so Kizzee saw police and deputies arriving to help the woman. He escaped through the back door and ran into the woods near the house. The woman identified him to the authorities, who began searching for him in the area.
Police dogs were brought in to hunt him down in the woods and found him in an area near a stream, Wallace said.
He and two other people who have not yet been named are in police custody. Wallace said they were found with several stolen guns as well as drugs. They were also accused of harboring a fugitive.
