Police dog catches fleeing fugitive

A Spokane police dog tracked a man for two blocks after a domestic dispute Saturday, leading to the suspect's arrest.

Maximus, Officer Paul Gorman's K-9, found Leo Kenneth Landon, 30, hiding in the backyard of a home in the 1600 block of West 11th Ave., after responding to a domestic dispute at 1617 W. 12th Ave., at 11:13 p.m., police said.

Landon's wife told police her husband had a felony warrant for escape and had ran northbound as officer arrived. Officers set up a perimeter the neighborhood and brought in Maximus.

Landon “quickly surrendered” when he heard the dog, police said.

Landon was booked into jail for a felony warrant for escape from community custody.
