Findlay, Ohio — A Toledo man’s attempt to allegedly steal around $5,000 worth of cigarettes from a Findlay store went up in smoke thanks to a police K-9.
An employee working at Casey’s, 1403 N. Main St., called 911 at approximately 3:11 a.m. Wednesday to report a burglary in progress. The business was closed at the time of the incident.
According to the report, a male had broken the glass door and made entry into the business.
A Findlay Police Department K-9 unit was in the area and arrived as the suspect was allegedly climbing out of the broken door with approximately $5,000 worth of cigarettes, according to police.
The man was ordered to stop but instead failed to comply with the officer’s commands, police said.
The K-9 was deployed, resulting in the suspect’s apprehension.
The suspect, identified as 53-year-old William J. Brewer Jr., of Toledo, sustained injury to his lower leg as a result of the K-9’s apprehension.
Brewer was transported to the Blanchard Valley Hospital for treatment. Due to the extent of the injury, he was later transferred to St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo.
