The driver exited the business moments later to see the truck being driven away. The driver contacted police and reported the vehicle as stolen.
 
At 4:00 pm the complainant contacted police again as they had located the stolen vehicle parked in the 1300 block of University Avenue West. The complainant had also witnessed a male in possession of some property believed to have been from the stolen vehicle.
 
Patrol officers arrived and observed from a distance the same male exit a residence, throw an item onto a rooftop, and then flee out of sight on foot.
 
Officers established a perimeter and utilized the assistance of the Police Dog Unit. Police Service Dog FUSE and his handler were able to locate a suspect male hiding in a nearby yard. The suspect was arrested without incident.
