Officer’s K9 Partner Apprehends Findlay Burglary Suspect

A Findlay Police Department K9 helped apprehend a man who was stealing from a convenience store.

Police responded to the Casey’s at 1403 North Main Street at 3:11 Tuesday morning on the report that someone had broken the glass door and entered the business.

Police say they arrived on the scene to find the suspect, William Brewer, 53, of Toledo, climbing out the broken door with more than $5,000 worth of cigarettes.

He was ordered to stop but ignored the officer’s commands.

The officer deployed his K9 partner who quickly apprehended the suspect.

The suspect sustained an injury to the lower portion of one of his legs during the K9 apprehension.

He was taken to Blanchard Valley Hospital for treatment and then transferred to a Toledo hospital due to the extent of the injury.
