Kennewick’s K9 Ivan Snags Suspect After Chase [PHOTOS]
Two burglary suspects are in custody thanks to Kennewick's police K9 Ivan! The criminal duo allegedly broke into storage units in the 5600 block of West Metaline Avenue on Saturday.
33-year old Jose Perez-Gonzalez and 33-year old Shegow Gagow attempted to flee Police officers, but not before Perez-Gonzalez intentionally stopped and rammed a patrol car, injuring the officer, who was thrown from the vehicle upon impact. Perez-Gonzalez struck another patrol car and fled.
As the pursuit continued Perez-Gonzalez struck a citizen's vehicle. Perez-Gonzalez ditched the get-away vehicle in the 1100 block of West 10th Avenue, where Gagow surrendered.
Perez-Gonzalez fled to a nearby apartment. By this time, Officers from Richland, Pasco, and the Benton County Sheriff's Department assisted with containment of the area. As police were preparing to get the suspect to surrender, he jumped out of a window and fled again.
Officers used a taser in an attempt to stop Perez-Gonzalez. He fled to the 900 block of South Ione Street and that area was contained. It was K9 Ivan who located the suspect in a citizen's backyard hiding in a shed. Ivan held the suspect until officers placed him under arrest.
Both burglary suspects were treated at an area hospital and booked into the Benton County Jail. Gagow was booked for Burglary. Perez-Gonzalez, however, is charged with Burglary and much more, including, Assault, Eluding, Resisting Arrest, Hit and Run, and Driving With a Suspended License.
