A Police K-9 unit is being credited for catching a suspect who had led police on a 20 mile-long chase.
Around 10 PM Wednesday an officer spotted a car that had been reported stolen from Evansville, Indiana. The officer followed the car through north county along I-270 to west county. The suspect eventually noticed the officer following him and increased his speed.
The suspect eventually abandoned his car in Fenton and tried to run away. A K-9 unit bit the man and subdued him. An officer was also bitten during the struggle and received treatment at a nearby hospital.
Police say the suspect may be connected to a series of car break-ins across St. Louis.
