K-9 and Domestic Violence Unit Team Up for Arrest


On Friday, October 11, 2019 at approximately 0022 hours, Lawrence Police, and investigators of its newly formed Domestic Violence Unit, responded to a domestic violence call wherein the suspect had engaged in approximately 106 violations of an active restraining order threatening that if the victim did not “drop the restraining order,” she would “not live another day.” The victim indicated that the suspect possessed a firearm and a “stun-gun” with which he had threatened her in the past. The suspect has a history of abusing the victim and was known to several responding officers. 

Officers proceeded to the suspect’s home where the suspect concealed himself with the help of a family member. LPD K-9 Officer Aguirre and his K-9 “Magnus,” assisted officers with the subsequent search of the home. “Magnus” tracked the suspect to an obscure area of the home where LPD Officers found the suspect hiding under a pile of laundry. The suspect, and the family member who assisted in his concealment, were placed under arrest and now face charges that include Stalking, Interfering with an Investigation, and over 100 violations of an active restraining order.
