On October 2, Sergeant W. Killian located 25-year-old Travon Price at his place of employment where he was arrested and served an outstanding domestic violence warrant for felony breaking and entering with the intent to injure and terrorize, domestic violence protective order violation, and domestic criminal trespass.

I would like to thank Deputy Horton for his prompt effort in handling this case and obtaining warrants against this subject.”
