Johnny Locates A Suspect

According to police reports, two men were walking along Bel-Aire Drive on Aug. 18, 2010 when they spotted a burglar trying to get into a neighbor’s home. The citizens confronted the crook, and recognized him as a suspect from past neighborhood burglaries. They tried to grab onto the man, but he took off running as police were called. Officers set up a perimeter, and with the help of MPD police dog Johnny, the suspect was located and taken into custody following a foot chase. He indicated he has just gotten out of jail that morning, that he was a member of a gang, but denied trying to break in.
