SPD dog takes bite out of crime in deli burglary

A 23-year-old man was arrested for investigation of the burglary of a West Seattle deli store Saturday after he allegedly fled the business and was found by a police dog, Seattle police said in a Web post Sunday.

Officers responded at about 1:12 a.m. to 911 calls of a burglary of the deli in the 9000 block of 35th Avenue Southwest.

Police said a witness saw a man break the glass front door of the business and rush inside. Officers searched inside the store but didn’t locate anyone.

During an area search with the assistance of a canine unit, the dog found the suspect in the 9200 block of 35th Avenue Southwest, police said.
