The department shared a clip from the bodycam video of the arrest on its Facebook page, showcasing the K9′s role in the arrest.
TPD responded to the armed robbery at the Circle K, located at 1848 Capital Circle NE, around 12:30 a.m. Monday. Police say the suspect entered the store with a gun and demanded money before he left the area in a vehicle.
A nearby officer quickly found the suspect vehicle and tried to pull it over, but the suspect drove away at a high speed before stopping and bailing out of the vehicle in the 2700 block of Capital Circle NE, according to TPD.
A TPD K9 unit responded to the area and tracked the suspect through a ravine. The department says the K9 found the suspect hiding in the woods, and he was arrested.
