Bryan Carver allegedly put his GPS on his dog -- and violated his parole with guns and cocaine
The answer has to do with Nuzzy's collar -- after which Carver and Byrd were the ones getting collared. Details in probable cause statements on view below.
This past December 19, according to the statement associated with Carver, parole officers were conducting a surveillance operation at 226 South Stuart Street.
The GPS Carver had been ordered to wear showed he was inside the residence, but they soon came up with incontrovertible evidence that he wasn't.
The clue? They saw him drive up and go inside.
At that point, the parole officers knocked on the front door of the house and saw what's described as a juvenile female look out the window -- strike two against Carver, since, as a convicted sex offender, he was under orders not to be in such close proximity to any young girls whatsoever.
226 South Stuart Street.
As for strike three, it had to do with Carver's exit strategy: He and Byrd, another man with a felony conviction in his past, tried to flee out the back of the house.
No wonder, since a search of the property turned up a number of things that neither man was supposed to have in his possession -- such as a shitload of guns, plus meth and crack cocaine. The latter was found near a Ruger .380 semi-automatic handgun...and paperwork for Byrd's bond.
Oh yeah: Carver's GPS was found attached to the collar on Nuzzy, described as "his little dog."
