Cope Officer Drew was posted outside of Washington Elementary during the whole time, the K-9 unit was tracking the suspect. Officer Drew told theHuntingtonian “don’t worry we will get him, it appears he was wanted on warrants” and once again Officer Drew is correct. Thank you SCPD for another fine job. Many people were concerned.
