ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) - A man suspected of drowning a St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office dog has surrendered after authorities launched a manhunt for him.

The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office says 26-year-old Brandon Allison turned himself in Wednesday after a nearly 24-hour search.

The Florida Times-Union reports (https://bit.ly/1t3eqka ) that Allison was initially being tracked by a K-9 early Tuesday after neighbors at a subdivision reported a disturbance.

Once the K-9 Baron took off after Allison, the dog’s handler said noises came from the woods, including a man yelling.

The dog was later found floating dead in a swampy area nearby, the apparent victim of a drowning.
