EDGEWATER, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a K-9 officer tracked down a suspect who stole his neighbor’s generator.

William Packard said he suddenly heard his generator shut off Friday and spotted a man in the backyard running off with his $1,200 generator. He told Edgewater police he tried to catch him.

According to a police report, a K-9 officer tracked the suspect to a neighbor’s house. They found 31-year-old Jeremy Swartz inside and a generator partially hidden in a bedroom closet. The report said a resident in the house pointed at Swartz and said, ‘he did it.’
