Bedford K-9 Officer Helps Find Alleged Vandal, Thief

Last updated on Monday, November 3, 2008

(BEDFORD) - Bedford Police Department’s furriest officer helped make an arrest early this morning.

Bedford Police Assistant Chief Dan Kirk tells WBIW News an officer found a man wearing a hooded shirt walking near the Lake Auto Mart, directly away from a series of soda vending machines that had been pried open.

Kirk says the officer checked out the machines, and before he could realize exactly what happened, the man he noticed could not be found. Kirk says money had been taken from the machines.

During the search, Bedford's K-9 officer, Officer "North," was called in, and eventually located a 17-year-old juvenile hiding in a pile of limestone blocks covered by tall grass. The young man reportedly had money on him as well as a tire wrench.

The juvenile was charged with theft, resisting arrest by fleeing, and vandalism to a vending machine.
