From the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit:
At approximately 1:00 pm on January 5, an alert citizen called 911 to report a possibly burglary of a residence in the 2600 block of Yelm Hwy SE.
Two deputies arrived on scene and a male fled out the back window of the residence.
Fortunately, K9 Dexter was already on scene with his partner.
After a lengthy K9 track and multiple sightings and fence crossings, the suspect was located hiding in a garage under a pile of items.
K9 Dexter assisted in taking the suspect into custody and the suspect was booked into Thurston County Jail for Residential Burglary.
Good job, K9 Dexter!
