Tracking Dog Nabs Teen

By Patrick Sullivan | Feb. 6, 2019

A teenager sprang from a car stopped by police for driving without headlights, leading to a search that ended a little while later when a police dog tracked down the suspect nearby.

The traffic stop happened Monday at 7:19pm when a Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s deputy pulled over a car on US-31 South near Auto Zone and the driver fled on foot. An 18-year-old passenger was briefly detained and then released.

A Traverse City Police dog handler arrived to track the suspect, who was later spotted by a deputy inside Kohl’s department store. The suspect bolted out of the back of the store but was soon tracked to the Fox Motors parking lot and arrested.

The 19-year-old East Jordan man was arrested for driving without a license, resisting arrest, and having several outstanding warrants.
