EUGENE, Ore. -- Two men suspected of burglarizing a home in Eugene were arrested Monday night, with the help of a police dog.

Police said at about 10:30 p.m. they responded to the 600 block of East 14th Avenue, where a homeowner was in a dispute with the two men. 

Coty Trafton, 22, was found at the scene, but police said Corey Wormus, 23, ran from the area.

With help from Eugene police dog Cwyk, officers tracked Wormus to 17th Avenue and High Street. They said Wormus jumped over fences and ran south and was again spotted at 18th Avenue and Pearl Street. Cwyk caught up with Wormus, and he was taken into custody.

Wormus and Trafton were taken to the hospital because police said they may have ingested heroin and Wormus also suffered a dog bite.

Police said Wormus faces charges of first-degree burglary and interfering with a peace officer. Trafton faces a first-degree burglary charge.
