Several teenage boys from Rancho Cucamonga are facing charges after they decided that stealing pizzas was better than paying for them. In a cruel encounter, they lured a Domino’s delivery person to an abandoned residence, then attacked him and stole his pizzas. Fortunately for the delivery man and the franchise, an experienced K-9 bloodhound named Dare was ready for action and followed the delicious scent of pizza straight to the attackers.
Just after midnight on May 10th, a Domino’s delivery person attempted to deliver a pizza to what we now know is an abandoned house on Bari Court. When he arrived, he saw one teenager lurking outside the house, whom he began walking toward. He was then hit over the head with a bottle by another teen who snuck up behind him. The teens then stole the pizza from his hands, as well as all of the pizzas for other deliveries in his car.
The delivery person contacted the police, who dispatched Dare and her handler. With little delay, Dare sniffed out the savory slices and led officers to a garage where four teenage boys were eating their loot. In their possession was damning evidence, including the driver’s equipment and warming containers.
Deputy Jacob Bailey said of their adept K-9 officer, “Her ability to track suspects, missing persons, victims, etc. have been highlighted over and over again. Her effectiveness allows patrol deputies to return to their assigned beats much sooner than before.”
