Brandon police used the canine unit to track down the second of two suspects who were spotted checking out vehicles in the wee hours of Friday morning.
Officers got a call just before 3 a.m. that reported the duo in the 600-block of 34th Street. They were able to catch one 18-year-old man inside a vehicle — he was arrested but was so drunk he was also taken to the drunk tank overnight. He was to be released later Friday after being charged under the Highway Traffic Act for tampering with a motor vehicle.
A second suspect was sniffed out by a police dog and found hiding in a nearby yard. He was also intoxicated and after his arrest spent the night in the drunk tank. He's to appear in court on June 30, facing a charge of trespass by night.
