(Port Angeles) -- Port Angeles police officers arrested a burglary suspect Sunday night. And it's not the first time he has been in trouble with the law.
Officers were dispatched to a reported burglary in progress in the 100 block of West 4th Street about 10 p.m.
The homeowner told officers that he had heard noises coming from his garage and went to investigate.
He discovered a man with a flashlight going through his belongings.
The man fled on foot eastbound down the alley and away from the garage.
Port Angeles officers and Clallam County sheriff's deputies set up containment and established a perimeter in anticipation of a K-9 track.
Corporal Kevin Miller and K-9 Jag tracked the suspect two blocks to a residence in the 200 block of South Laurel Street, where he was found hiding under a vehicle.
Police say the suspect, Sean Gormley, was arrested and taken into custody.
He was later booked into the Clallam County Jail on the charge of burglary in the second degree, a class B Felony.
This is the tenth time that Gormley has been arrested and booked into the jail in the past half dozen years.
