SANTA ROSA COUNTY, Fla. (WKRG) — It was a busy morning for Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s K-9 Bloodhounds.

A Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office media release says its bloodhounds, Copper and Zinc, found a missing person and a burglary suspect.

The man’s cooler and a canoe was located on a sandbar. The K-9 Bloodhounds tracked the missing man through the woods and found him, hunkered down and in need of assistance, deputies said.

The man was able to get medical help.

In a separate incident, the bloodhounds helped deputies find two burglary suspects near Makenna Circle in Pace.

Both suspects, Juwuan Trason Rease and a juvenile, were taken into custody and charged accordingly, the media release said.
