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.
