Dog caught on video chasing away would-be thief

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - A dog named Hunter deserves a belly rub or two after thwarting a crime in his neighborhood.

Good boy: Dog caught on video chasing away would-be thief

His owner, Richard Garrett, posted surveillance video on his Facebook page:

A man was trying to break into a car parked in a woman’s driveway on Madison Avenue just before 12:45 a.m. Tuesday, but a dog next door had other plans. You can see the dog Hunter chasing the suspect around the corner.

We are told the suspect wasn’t successful thanks to Hunter. But neighbors tell us there’s been a string of car break-ins the past two nights on the streets just south of Bosse High School.

One woman tells us someone stole a wallet and that credit cards have already been used at two different places.

Now, neighbors are giving Hunter a little extra loving and say he’s a good dog that should get some treats after that chase.
