SAUCIER -- K9 Espo went in a home and apprehended a suspected burglar who was seen entering an unoccupied home and had refused to come out, Sheriff Troy Peterson said.
Deputies arrested Quintin Judge Richard, 24, of Coogins Cove, on a charge of burglary of a different Saucier residence on Sunday.
Deputies had been called to the 19100 block of Palmer Creek Drive, where a witness reported seeing an unknown man enter a home whose owner was out of town, Peterson said.
The suspect didn't comply with orders to come out, so deputies called out a K-9 warning and the canine team gained control of him, he said.
