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 37-year old Shegow Gagow attempted to flee Police officers, but not before Perez-Gonzalez stopped and slammed into a patrol car. The impact injured the officer, who was thrown from the vehicle. Perez-Gonzalez then struck another patrol and a chase began.
As the pursuit continued Perez-Gonzalez struck another vehicle and then ditched the get-away vehicle in the 1100 block of West 10th Avenue. This is where Gagow gave up.
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.
Officers used a taser attempting to stop Perez-Gonzalez. He continued to the 900 block of South Ione Street and that area was contained. K9 Ivan located the suspect in a backyard hiding in a shed. Ivan held the suspect until officers arrested him.
Both burglary suspects were 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.
