An alleged burglar got nothing but a dog bite and a free ride to the Clark County Jail after breaking into a Pleasant Highlands-area home.

The burglary was reported around 12:30 p.m. at 4116 N.E. 134th St. near Salmon Creek, according to emergency dispatch logs.

A woman saw a male subject enter the home through her bedroom window, ran out the front door and called 911 from a neighbors home, said Sgt. Fred Neiman with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

When deputies arrived, the suspect ran out the back of the home. A sheriff’s office K-9 tracked the man through the neighborhood and “made contact,” Neiman said.

The Vancouver Fire Department and AMR responded. It doesn’t appear the man was sent to the hospital, Neiman said.

He was taken to the Clark County Jail.
