An alleged Utah cop killer was caught after a barking dog alerted a homeowner to his hiding place, KSTU reported Monday.
Scott Curley, 23, was arrested at 1:00am local time Monday at a home in Kanab, Utah, after being on the run since Thursday when he allegedly ambushed and killed Sheriff's Deputy Brian Harris, 41.
A homeowner noticed Curley, who was still carrying a rifle, after his dog barked when it saw the fugitive in his yard, and called 911.
A team of 17 law enforcement officers responded to the call, and Curley surrendered without incident, KSTU said.
The U.S. Marshals Service offered a $10,000 reward Saturday for information leading to the his capture.
Curley was thought to be hiding out in the high country deserts outside Kanab and neighboring Fredonia, a small town just south of the Utah border in Arizona.
A warrant was issued Friday, charging Curley with first-degree felony murder in the death of Harris. Police were chasing him after a series of burglaries when Curley allegedly ambushed them Thursday.
Coconino County Sheriff's Commander Kurt Braatz said Harris, a Gulf War veteran, was a resident of Mount Carmel, Utah, and was married with two daughters.
Utah Gov. Gary Herbert described the sheriff's deputy as a lawman who put "himself in a dangerous situation to protect his community."
In an interview with KSTU, Curley's cousin Virgil Homer said he believed drugs might have been a motive for the crime spree that led to the deputy's killing. He also previously expressed fear that his cousin wanted to die by "suicide by cop."
