Burglars Chose Police Dog Training Center To Steal Copper


What were they thinking?!

Dogs chase down suspects in break-in at K-9 training facility

The Associated Press - GAINESVILLE, Ga.

You can't say the three burglary suspects chased down by police dogs weren't warned: Signs identified the scene of the alleged crime as a police dog training facility.

"It was posted everywhere, 'K-9 training facility,'" said Hall County Sheriff's Sgt. Kiley Sargent.

The dog handlers showed up at 4 p.m. Wednesday up for a training session inside the abandoned Lakeshore Heights Nursing Home when they discovered two men and a woman dismantling the building's copper pipes and wiring, Sargent said.

When the officers arrived, the three dropped their tools and ran.

That was their second mistake.

"For anyone to try to run from a whole unit of canines, it's just a no-win situation," Sargent said.

The woman, Pamela Puckett, 37, quickly surrendered. One man, Paul Perry, 39, got a dog bite just below the buttocks before he was arrested, authorities said.

The second man, Marc Black, 18, was tracked to a trash bin behind a nearby convenience store.

Perry, a Gainesville resident, and Puckett and Black, who live in Braselton, were each charged with burglary, Sargent said. Perry and Black also face misdemeanor obstruction charges. Perry was treated at Northeast Georgia Medical Center for a superficial bite wound, Sargent said.

Police don't know whether the three didn't see the dog training signs or just ignored them.

"It's not like it was a secret," Sargent said. "I guess someone who is that determined to steal something might not pay attention."

That's hilarious. It reminds me of something I saw on TV as the police have busted a crack house and are carrying away evidence. One guy comes up and wants to buy drugs from one of the policemen.
