PENN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A Cass County sheriff’s dog named Faust led deputies in the right direction when looking for two suspects in a break-in.

Deputies were called to a home on Hoffman Road by Shattuck Road in Penn Township on an aggravated assault about 5 p.m. Saturday.

Authorities say a 19-year-old man from Edwardsburg and a 30-year-old woman from Niles broke into a home and started fighting with the homeowners. The suspects later ran from the scene in an unknown direction, so deputies brought out their K-9 Faust.

Faust tracked the suspects 4.5 miles away, where they were taken into custody for outstanding warrants. A third suspect was also taken into custody.

The suspects’ names were not released Sunday.
