Moses Lake K-9 nabs car thief after short pursuit


MOSES LAKE- One of the Moses Lake Police Department’s canines has done it again.

This past Friday, Moses Lake Police received a report of a stolen vehicle. The vehicle had a GPS tracking device installed, so the owner was able to tell deputies the vehicle was in the Warden area.

MLPD Deputy Tyson Voss and his K-9 Edo caught up to the vehicle and a short vehicle pursuit ensued.

The driver of the stolen vehicle, Jonathan Davis, tried to drive off road and the vehicle became stuck. Davis ran and was tracked by K-9 Edo hiding in a truck near State Route 170 East and Road R.5-Southeast. The vehicle was recovered and nobody was hurt.
