Smart K-9 locates suspect in stolen car crash

ATTLEBORO, MASS. (WHDH) – State police dog Echo came to the aid of the Attleboro Police Department on June 4 when the K-9 located a suspect who fled on foot from the scene of a stolen vehicle crash.

Troopers Bob Bohn, Brian Galvin, and Dave Nims responded to the scene and after being briefed by Attleboro Police, Echo was prepared for action.

The K-9 quickly picked up the suspect’s scent and began tracking away from the scene and through a nearby cemetery where articles of the suspect’s clothing were found.

Near the far side of the cemetery, Echo began showing signs of a “proximity alert” that told officers the suspect was nearby.

Once at the fence line, Galvin noticed that the ground had been disturbed and upon closer inspection, the officer found the suspect lying in the thick underbrush.

The suspect was taken into custody without incident and subsequently turned over to Attleboro Police.
