Kalamazoo Public Safety K-9 units track down car thief suspects


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Kalamazoo Public Safety officials say a pair of K-9 trackers sniffED out a couple of alleged car thieves on the city’s north side Sunday night.

A delivery driver from Hunan Gardens left his Honda CRV running while he made a delivery in the 800-block of West Kalamazoo.  When he came back, the vehicle was gone.

Three hours later, the vehicle was spotted on Patterson Street with two teens inside.  They abandoned it after a short chase from Kalamazoo Public Safety and disappeared into a nearby neighborhood around 9 p.m.

A tracking dog sniffed out the passenger, a 17-year-old from Oshtemo, hiding beneath a deck.  Another tracked the 16-year-old driver to a home on Princeton.

Both suspects were arrested for car theft and resisting and obstructing police.  The passenger was also found to be wanted on an outstanding warrant.
