MANATEE -- A suspected car thief was captured early Sunday after a Manatee sheriff’s dog tracked down and bit the suspect, according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report.
Letroy D. Mosley, 24, fled from a stolen vehicle he was driving after crashing into a wall around 2:50 a.m. in the 5400 block of 15th Street East, according to the report. But the K9 tracked and found Mosley hiding behind a home. The suspect was bit by the dog during the arrest, and Mosley was taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.
Mosley is being held on charges of grand theft auto, as well as several warrants for fleeing to elude, aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, and grand theft auto.
