Police K-9 catches burglary suspect in NE Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. – Some alert neighbors and a Portland police K-9 helped capture a suspected burglar after a break-in Monday evening.

A homeowner confronted a burglar who forced a door open in the 1900 block of Northeast Klickitat Street, police said. The suspect ran away, but neighbors saw him and called police.

Officers and a K-9 team responded to the area just before 7 p.m. and set up a perimeter. A K-9 named Siggi and his handler led officers to the suspect, later identified as 34-year-old Joshua Purdue, and they took him into custody.

Purdue faces charges of first-degree burglary, third-degree robbery and parole violation.
