Fremont is full of dogs. Seems you can’t walk down the street without running into at least seven of them. So it should be no surprise that they’re solving crimes for us now.

On 06-28-2011, at approximately 2:51 a.m., a Canine Officer was dispatched to a Burglary call in the 100 block of N. 39th St, involving several homes in the Fremont area.  The suspect had broken two windows, on two separate homes.

The officer and his canine partner began their track where the caller had last seen the suspect.  The track continued and the suspect was located in a backyard of another individuals home.  The suspect complied with orders given by the officer and was taken into custody without incident.

The 23- year- old suspect was booked for Investigation of Property Damage.

Remember, next time you see a dog in Fremont, it might be working undercover. So be nice.
