Police dog brings quick end to standoff with wanted man

(Riverton, Wyo.) - Five law enforcement agencies congregated on the north end of Eagle Drive at the College Hill Apartments this afternoon where a wanted man from Colorado was spotted. The suspect, tentatively identified as a Duane (or Dwayne) Boyd, who also goes by the nickname of "Monster" apparently discovered he was about to be caught, and he crawled under the apartment into a crawl space. He stayed under the home for over an hour before a BIA Wind River Police Department canine handler arrived at the scene with his dog. The officer warned Boyd over his vehicle's loudspeaker that he was about to release the dog and the man needed to come out. Just a few moments after the dog entered the home, the suspect gave himself up.

As he was being escorted out of the home, the suspect spotted the County10 photographer and he yelled, "There's County 10, I'm going to be on the news!" He was then placed inside a Fremont County Sheriff's Department vehicle and driven to the Riverton Police Department.

The drama began shortly after 2 p.m. when a Riverton officer spotted Boyd behind the apartment complex and saw him enter the north end of one building. Sheriff's deputies, DCI agents, more Riverton Police officers and a Wyoming Highway Patrol State Trooper arrived to assist, cordoning off the area. When it became known that the man had crawled under the apartment, the RPD's Special Response Team was activated. The Animal Control Officer was also called to the scene and asked to bring her animal snare with her, according to radio reports.
