BURKE COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - Police say a wanted man was arrested Thursday, after he was found hiding inside of a home that officials say he illegally entered on Wednesday.

According to the Burke County Sheriff’s Office, 28-year-old Travis Michael Coble was charged with five counts of breaking an entering five counts of second degree trespassing, two counts of assault on a government official employee and resisting a public officer.

On Thursday, deputies were called to the scene of a home in the 200 block of Main Avenue West in Hildebran where Coble was inside.

Officials previously issued arrest warrants for Coble for illegally entering that residence Wednesday. He was initially wanted on breaking and entering and trespassing charges.

Coble refused to come to the door, then deputies assisted by K9 “Zane” came into the residence.

After multiple warnings, K9 Zane was deployed and focused on a cabinet in the basement.

The deputy pulled the cabinet door open, and officials say Coble “violently” came out cursing, swinging at the deputy and kicking the K9.

K9 Zane bit him and Coble was pushed over a recliner chair. The K9 jumped over the recliner and reengaged him until deputies could arrest Coble.

Coble was taken to the hospital by EMS where he was treated and medically released.

He was then taken to the magistrate where he was served with the five outstanding warrants and in addition, was charged for two counts of assault on a government official and resisting a public officer.

Coble was taken to Burke-Catawba District Confinement Facility where he was held under a $45,000 secured bond with a court date for Oct. 10, 2018.
