SAPULPA, Okla. — A Sapulpa police officer is recovering after he was attacked by dog while serving a search warrant, according to Captain Glenn Coffey with the Sapulpa Police Department.

On Dec. 22, a warrant was issued for the arrests Bo Turner and Sarah Jones for second degree burglary, Coffey said. A search warrant was also issued for their trailer.

Turner and Jones were not at their residence at the time the search warrant was executed. During the search, Coffey said Sapulpa police uncovered several items that were reportedly stolen.

Four hours later, Coffey said Turner was located at a different house and taken into custody.

On Dec. 24, Sapulpa police returned to the trailer and arrested Jones. Next, a pit bull ran past two officers and Jones, attacking a third officer.

As the dog bit into the officer's arm, Coffey said the officer attempted to shoot the K-9, but the bullet went through the officer's hands and hit the dog.

The dog then turned to attack the two other officers and the officers pepper-sprayed the dog, Coffey said. The pit bull then ran under the trailer.

Animal control services came out and took the dog to a vet to get treatment.

Coffey said the officer who was attacked is scheduled for surgery Tuesday to repair injuries sustained during the attack.
