Thurston County Sheriff’s Office K9 Daro spent his weekend fighting crime.

About 12:45 a.m. Sunday, following a report of a suspicious man and possible burglary in the 1700 block of 91st Avenue Southwest, deputies and Daro traced the man to a nearby swamp, Sgt. Carla Carter said Monday.

A 36-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of first-degree theft, second-degree burglary and second-degree vehicle prowl, she said. The man also was treated for hypothermia after hiding out in the swamp.

Sheriff’s deputies recovered $22,500 in stolen property.

Daro had spent Saturday night detaining a suspect that had run from a stolen vehicle following a pursuit, according to the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
