    A daring four-legged member of Illinois’ Lake County Sheriff’s Office took a lawbreaker into custody after his fellow deputies punched a hole in a wall to bypass a barricade set up by the entrenched suspect.

    LCSO K-9 Dax was called to join the hunt for Matthew Heidbrick, a 27-year-old who was wanted on a $100,000 bail warrant for failing to appear in court to face charges of possession of a controlled substance.

    According to a statement provided to the Chicago Tribune, the deputies “located Heidbrick hiding in an upstairs attic. Heidbrick refused numerous requests to surrender and exit the attic. Heidbrick instead retreated further into the attic and barricaded himself.”

    This, of course, is where K-9 Dax came in. Realizing they needed to get creative with the situation, deputies breached a hole in the wall and continued to order Heidbrick to surrender. When he continued to refuse, “Dax was deployed and assisted in the apprehension effort.”

    Following being restrained, Heidbrick was treated for dog bite wounds, which -in all fairness- were well-deserved. He was later charged with striking a police animal, resisting a peace officer and obstructing a police officer along with the previous charges.
