Tracking dog, handler nab same suspect twice

FRENCHTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- A law enforcement dog in southeastern Michigan is getting to know one man quite well.

The Monroe Evening News (http://bit.ly/UncWAD ) reports the German shepherd named Ranger and Monroe County sheriff's Deputy Rob Moody found the man hiding last week in a garbage can in Frenchtown Township after the theft of more than $300 of liquor and DVDs from a store.

Moody says the man was the same one they tracked a few weeks earlier in January in Bedford Township while seeking burglars.

Moody says he at first "didn't put two-and-two together," but later realized it was the same man. He says the double catch is "a first for me."

Following the first charge for resisting arrest, the 25-year-old man was released from custody. He's now jailed on charges including shoplifting.
