EUGENE, Ore. – A police dog helped police arrest a suspect after a break-in at a local business.
Just before midnight on Nov. 9, police learned of a possible break-in at G&D Chillers, 760 Bailey Hill Road.
Police said an employee saw William Hess, 37, walking around inside the security-fenced property.
Hess allegedly threw items over the fence from inside the business. As he was crawling under a hole in the chain-link fence, Hess was faced with Jax and his handler Officer Travis Palki, and he surrendered, police said.
Officers recovered stolen property.
Hess was taken to the Lane County Jail on charges of first-degree criminal mischief, first-degree theft, and second-degree criminal trespass. He was also arrested on a warrant of the Oregon State Parole Board.
