GRADY COUNTY, GA (WALB) – A police dog helped arrest a meth suspect who ran from a road check in Grady County Wednesday afternoon. 28-year old Skeeter Weeks and 34-year old Kimberly Register are charged with attempting to make meth, possession of ephedrine, and gun violations.

They turned their pickup truck around on Old Thomasville Road around 3:30 to avoid a road check. They drove through farm fields trying to get away from pursuing officers. Finally, Weeks got out and ran.

Officers launched a search for him and arrested Register at the truck where they found components to make meth. Rudy, the K-9 officer from the Mitchell County Correctional Institution, tracked down Weeks. He was also wanted on outstanding warrants from Mitchell County.
