of a Savannah man wanted on 20 counts of check fraud. Officers proceeded to 1712 Reynolds Street. After knocking on the door, an adult female answered stating, Jerome aint here, but the officer saw the subject get up from behind her and walk to the rear of the house. The female was told that the officer had just seen the suspect when she answered the door, that there were multiple warrants for his arrest and that hindering the arrest of the suspect was a crime. Still the woman refused. Officers entered the residence, along with a K-9 Officer and his canine partner, Nick, who alerted to an area under a raised bed in the rear of the residence. When the suspect realized the dog was at his heels he yelled, Im coming out. In addition to the charges against the man, the woman who obstructed officers was arrested and charged with Hindering the Apprehension of a Criminal.
