ROSEBURG, Ore. — Roseburg's top dog led deputies directly to the culprit in an office break-in on Saturday, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office (DCSO).

Officers from the Roseburg Police Department first responded to the call around 3 p.m. An employee at the offices of drug rehabilitation and mental health clinic Adapt had arrived at work to find signs of a break-in, prompting the call to police.

Police soon requested help from DCSO's K9 "Grim" for a search of the building.

"Several announcements were made that the business would be searched with a law enforcement K9, but the suspect did not surrender," the Sheriff's Office said.

Grim tracked down the suspect, finding him hiding underneath a desk. The man, later identified as 43-year-old Gabriel Baker of Myrtle Creek, was taken into custody. Baker was booked into the Douglas County Jail on charges of Burglary II, Criminal Mischief II and a parole violation.

According to DCSO, Grim is a 7-year-old German Shepherd and has been with them since 2013. He was purchased for the agency by an anonymous donor in the community, and the DCSO K9 program receives continued support from the nonprofit Friends of Umpqua Valley Police K9 Programs.
