K9 Helps Nab Rochester Teenage Fugitive
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester teenager was apprehended Tuesday night - but only after a drawn-out attempt to avoid being taken into custody.
Officers were trying serve an arrest warrant on 19 year old Matthew Miller at a residence near the Boys and Girls Club around 7:30 p.m. when he took off on foot.
Miller ran through the residential neighborhood and was eventually found hiding in a garage. When he ran off again, a police dog was released. The dog bit Miller on the arms and legs. As officers were trying to take him away, he again tried to flee but was caught.
Police say he was being sought on a warrant stemming from a 2013 drive-by shooting case.
