Salt Lake City police say a failed traffic stop, a chase, a crash and the keen senses of their police dogs ended with the arrests of two ex-cons.
The incident began at 3:25 a.m. Sunday when a K-9 officer attempted to pull over a suspicious vehicle, which then sped away. The officer ended his pursuit due to public safety concerns, only to discover moments later that the suspect vehicle had crashed into a parked car near 400 East and Emerson Street (1400 South).
Police set up a containment area and, using two dogs, soon located first, a 28-year-old suspect hiding under stairs. A short time later, the dogs led them to the second, a 34-year-old suspect, hiding in area just north of the crash site.
