San Luis Obispo County deputies, CHP officers and Cal Fire officers searched the small bedroom community.

According to scanner traffic, deputies arrested a suspect before 10 p.m.

I hope the K9 was used, I find that search method to be a great asset to the safety and performance of our law enforcement.
