A Salinas police dog today helped the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office track down a man suspected of trying to steal power tools and construction materials in Pebble Beach, the Salinas Police Department said.

A man at the site sped off in his vehicle with deputies chasing him at high speeds until the man crashed his vehicle and ran off on foot, hiding in an area with thick brush, police said.

Nerro immediately picked up the man’s scent, and found Evan Vaught, 22, crouching in some bushes, police said. Vaught surrendered after Nerro bit him, officers said.
