PALMER, Mass. (WWLP) – Massachusetts State Police dog, K9 Caber, located two suspects in a stolen car incident involving the Wilbraham and Palmer Police Departments.

According to the state police’s Facebook page, Wilbraham Police were in pursuit of a stolen car on Route 20 in Palmer. The vehicle was finally stopped once Palmer Police set up a tire deflation device in the road. State police said four suspects then got out of the car and ran.

Once K9 Caber arrived, state police said he led his handler through several backyards and through a parking lot before stopping at a fence. Caber then went off that track and onto another into a backyard where state police say he showed a change in behavior and pulled over to a porch.

On the porch were two suspects who state police said ran after being ordered to surrender. In turn, police dog Caber ran after them and apprehended them leading to their arrest.

State police said a third suspect then came out of hiding and surrendered to the officers on site. They are still trying to identify a fourth suspect.
