One Salinas police dog literally took a bite out of crime on Tuesday when officers released the hound to capture a burglary suspect holed up in an attic space, police said.Officers responded to the 900 block of La Mancha Way at about 10 a.m. for a report of a burglary in progress after a neighbor noticed the suspect and called police.An investigation revealed that the suspect was 23-year-old Francisco Orozco, and a search of Orozco’s car, which was parked in front of the victim’s house, yielded stolen property and a controlled substance, police said.Despite repeated attempts by officers to draw Orozco from the house, Orozco resisted for more than three hours. Officers finally entered the home, which had been ransacked and was now full of tipped over furniture and damaged walls, and determined Orozco was hidden in an attic space.Officers deployed the K-9 and were able to take Orozco, who sustained multiple puncture wounds and lacerations to his head and shoulders, into custody.Orozco was transported to Natividad Medical Center in Salinas for treatment of his wounds.Upon his release from the hospital, Orozco was booked at the Monterey County Jail on charges of burglary, resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of stolen property.
