NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A police dog has nabbed a burglar at a business that supplies Habitat for Humanity projects.
WZTV-TV reported Metro Nashville Police responded to a burglar alarm around 4 a.m. Monday. An officer spotted the burglar and ordered him to get down on the ground. The man initially complied, but then jumped up and ran.
The K-9 officer set the dog on the fleeing suspect who was later taken to Metro General Hospital for treatment of a dog bite. His name wasn't immediately released.
Authorities said the store receives donations from building supply stores and demolition companies and then sells the materials for a fraction of their value to the nonprofit organization that builds houses for poor people.
