REDDING, Calif. -  A Redding K-9 helped officers detain a burglary suspect found at a church early Tuesday morning.

At around 1:35 a.m. on Tuesday, Redding Police Officers responded to a reported burglary alarm at Neighborhood Church located at 777 Loma Vista Drive. The alarm company received a video clip of a suspected burglar which showed him wearing a mask over his face. 

Officers searched and located the suspect who was identified as Tyler Edward Coonan, 22, of Redding. When Coonan spotted officers he fled on foot. 

K-9 Otto was deployed to apprehend Coonan, and he was able to successfully capture him so officers could take him into custody. 

During the burglary, Coonan removed one hinge from a large gate and then broke into a trailer and storage shed. 

He was treated at a local hospital for a minor injury and then transported and booked into Shasta County Jail for possession of burglary tools, burglary, resisting arrest and prowling.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
