GLOUCESTER, Va. (WVEC) -- A police K-9 unit was able to track and take a fugitive into custody.

The Gloucester County Sheriff's Office said 23-year-old Michael Smith was wanted for grand larceny, assault and battery, and several other charges.

When deputies caught up with him last week, we're told he ran into the woods. Rexi, a police K-9, along with his handler assisted in a search of the area, and within 10 minutes, located Smith hiding in the woods.

Smith was taken into custody without further incident.
