REDDING, Calif. - A Redding K-9 is getting high marks after helping to nab a suspected car thief.

Officers say they caught Ryan Barret on Sunday as he was in the process of stealing a pick-up truck near Ellis and Polk Streets. 

Police called for back up and that's when K-9 Njord joined in. He helped track down Barret, who was hiding in another car in the yard.

Barret is now facing charges of attempted vehicle theft, vandalism and prowling.
