Rookie HPD K9 nabs three suspects on first night
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A new police dog tracked down three burglary suspects northeast Houston on its first night on the job, officials said
Police responded to a silent alarm at the E-Z Pawn on Mesa and Tidwell around 4am Sunday. When they reached the store, they saw three men running out the back of the business.
Officials said the men ran into a wooded area and police called in a K9 unit. It was a new dog and a new handler.
The dog found all three suspects, and even came out with one of the men's shoes in its mouth. One of the suspects was bitten, officials said.
The alleged burglary trio was arrested. Police said they found a video game system that was taken from the store on one of the suspects. It was unclear what else was taken.
