Prince Albert police tracked down and arrested a suspected auto thief Wednesday morning thanks to Police Service Dog Daxa and her handler Const. Kelsey Bighetty.
According to police, officers were called to the 400-block of 22nd St. E. shortly after 1 a.m. when someone reported a stolen van. Officers found the van at a nearby cemetery, but the driver abandoned the stolen vehicle and fled from police on foot.
Police set up containment around the cemetery and called in Bighetty and Daxa, who successfully tracked down the alleged perpetrator.
