Police Canine Ferrets Suspect Out Of Hiding Spot After Break-In On South Coast

After an alarm went off and police arrived at a Santa Barbara dental business Sunday morning, a suspect inside was found cornered in a very small space.

Police say the first officers there found him after they saw his foot, but the man wouldn't surrender.

A police canine was sent into the attic, and forced the man to surrender.

The suspect was injured, and after being taken out via a vent, he was treated at Cottage Hospital.

The Santa Barbara man was believed to be under the influence of drugs.
