A K9 with the Becker County Sheriff's Office tracked and located two suspects who fled on foot following a police chase on Friday. 

The Becker County Sheriff's Office responded to a burglary on County Highway 26, near Buffalo Lake, just before noon on Sept. 4, the sheriff's office said on Tuesday. A suspect was taken into custody, but another was at large.

A sheriff's sergeant then saw a suspicious vehicle with a passenger believed to be the suspect leaving the area. A White Earth Tribal Officer who was assisting attempted to stop the suspect vehicle in order to identify the passenger, but the driver fled and a pursuit began. 

The police chase lasted about 15 miles, ending on the east side of Cotton Lake off County Highway 29, and the driver and passenger fled on foot. 

Officials set up a perimeter, and K9 Cooper and his human partner Deputy Bouchie began tracking the suspects. Cooper located the female passenger first, and she was taken into custody without further incident. 

Cooper followed a second track and "a short time later," the K9 located the driver, who was taken into custody.

Officials did not provide additional details about the burlgary or the suspects. Bring Me The News has reached out to the Becker County Sheriff's Office for more information.
