The search for Griner continued until Saturday morning, when the Washington County Sheriff’s Office was called about a suspicious person who had walked out of the woods in the Sunny Hills area. WCSO deputies located Griner and took him into custody. Griner was near where he originally entered the woods.

Griner was arrested for violation of probation, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and shooting into an occupied dwelling.

In addition to the two sheriff’s departments, other agencies involved in the manhunt were the Florida Highway Patrol, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Northwest Florida Reception Center K9 Team.
