ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Car thief arrested in Highland Park
A K9 team worked alongside patrol officers tracking and eventually arresting a car thief around 2 a.m. on Thurs., Aug. 4 in Highland Park.

Officer Bryan Grozav received a report of a stolen 2006 Subaru Legacy and then found the vehicle driving on South Roxbury Street. He tried to follow the car, but the driver quickly took off.
About 10 minutes later, Sergeant Tamara Floyd saw the Subaru speeding down Roxbury and emitting a strong odor caused by the driver burning the clutch.

The same smell caught the attention of Officer Sam Specht around 2:40 a.m. The officer was around 9th Avenue S.W. and S.W. Trenton Street and saw the stolen car drive into an alley near 11th Avenue S.W.
Specht found the Subaru unoccupied in the alley and requested a K9 team to respond and additional officers for containment.

K9 Officer Mark Wong and Police Dog Ziva responded and were able to pick up a scent from the suspect at the stolen car. They followed his trail to a nearby garage and found the suspect hiding behind the door.
