FARGO (AP) — Fargo police say a suspected burglar had to be taken to the hospital for exposure to cold.
Officers with a police dog tracked the man through back yards early Wednesday for nearly an hour after getting a report about a prowler trying to open a garage door. They eventually caught him hiding behind a home’s air conditioning unit.
The 24-year-old man was arrested on several theft-related charges. Sgt. Mark Lykken told The Forum newspaper that before the man was booked into jail he was taken to the hospital to get treatment for exposure. Lykken said the man was not wearing a jacket, and temperatures were only in the teens.
