Belmont police dog helps capture two juveniles allegedly involved in a burglary
BELMONT — Vito has a nose for justice.
The Belmont K-9 team of Vito, a police dog, and officer Evan Boulanger tracked down two of three juveniles believed to have committed a burglary on High Steet at 11:20 a.m. Friday, reports the Concord Monitor.
The resident returned from a shopping trip to discover the door open, and that someone had been searching through the home in a bold daytime burglary.
Vito and the officer determined a scent track, and canvassed the neighborhood on foot. Meanwhile, a contractor downtown told police that a few minors had been leaving the neighborhood with a guitar, and a box of electronics.
The K-9 team was led to two of the juvenile suspects, both of whom reportedly admitted to committing the burglary. Police are still looking for the third suspect.
The minors will face charges through the state's Juvenile Justice system.
