For nearly an hour they scoured and set up a perimeter on the 2 blocks around my house. By this time our nosiness overtook the police command and we all were outside wanting to get the facebook mobile upload of the day. I wanted to see some tasering and film it for you tube, but we only got to partake in the perimeter.
When the police dogs, big German shepherds they were, arrived on the scene, the tension peeked. They barked and the one dog led the way. His nose led the officers to the daycare on the corner where they found the suspect in the AC vent hiding like a pussy. I would have kept running. All Forest Gump like away from here. Who goes and hides in a day care? That is my question. What moron sees a daycare full of children as a good hiding spot? Putting children and the day care employees at risk seems stupid to me and wouldn't that net him a whole bunch of new charges in addition to the ones he had already racked up?
So, give that police dog a bone, a treat, a rawhide chewable. He was the local hero here. We didn't get to see the suspect. We didn't even get a peep at him. The kids wanted to boo him.
Part of the perimeter.
Word from a good source is the suspect had stolen a motorcycle. He didn't obviously have a motorcycle on his person. After all was said and done, the patrol cars pulled away and all the thrill had passed. Several officers and one dog stayed in the yard behind my house and were going through it. Perhaps the suspect had ditched a weapon?
