A Richmond police dog apprehended a man burglarizing a dealership at Hilltop Auto Plaza Monday night, police said.

Officers responded to the area just before 11 p.m. after a security company observed the burglary in progress via CCTV cameras, Richmond police Capt. Al Walle said.

The suspect was still at the scene when police arrived and he ignored warnings to surrender to a police canine and hid under a desk, Walle said. He was subsequently apprehended by the dog.

“The suspect was on probation for auto theft and attempted to steal three iPads and several key fobs for vehicles on the lot,” Walle said.
