A Minnesota man caught breaking into a woman’s house refused to come out from his hiding place in the victim’s vehicle until a police K-9 took a bite out of him.
Kennie Ray Littleton Jr., 31, of St. Paul, was caught in a woman’s home when an iPhone app alerted the woman of an intruder.
The homeowner, who is spending the winter in southern Kansas, received an alert from a home-monitoring app that there was some motion inside her house back in Roseville. She opened the app and saw on the live video feed an intruder inside her home, stealing her property.
She called police, who arrived and found Littleton hiding in a vehicle. Authorities say he refused to come out, so they sent a police dog into the van and the animal bit the suspect, after which he surrendered.
Littleton was treated for the bite and then booked into the Ramsey County Jail on a burglary charge.
The iPhone app, called Cloud Baby Monitor, costs $3.99. The homeowner told police the app, the cameras and a monitoring hub cost her less than $200.
