Eugene, Ore. – At 10:45 p.m. on July 29, Eugene Police officers were called to West Gate, 50 N. Danebo Avenue, for a burglary in progress.

 

 

A security guard spotted a man inside the building. EPD officers, including K9 Officer Jacob Thomas and Ayk, went to the address.

Sometimes just the presence of a K9 team can be effective.

As they approached the building, the burglary suspect fled and officers quickly began

pursing him. During this, the K9 team provided an admonishment to the suspect about K9 deployment. This effectively prompted the suspect to stop in his tracks and he was safely taken into custody.

 

Anthony Scott McClellan, age 45, was charged with Burglary in the Second Degree and warrants.

 

Case 22-11427
