Police pooch gives alleged Mississauga burglar a rude awakening


Published December 14, 2021 at 5:03 pm

Peel Regional Police say a sleepy crook came face-to-face with a furry alarm clock after a break-and-enter on Monday morning.

Shortly before 7:00 a.m. on Monday, police say a man broke into a Mississauga business by causing damage to the property.

After pocketing some items, police say the man decided “to take a nap on the office couch.”

The post-break-in nap didn’t last long, as police arrived on scene with members of the Peel Police K9 Unit, including a police pooch named Murphy.

The man was taken into custody and police say he has been charged.

Police have yet to release the man’s name.
