Security officers aid in burglary arrest www.privateofficer.com
Colorado Springs officers were dispatched to the Citadel Mall, late Tuesday morning, regarding a possible car break-in in progress.
As the officers responded, Mall Security advised CSPD Dispatchers that the suspect was running westbound. Officer Scott Carnes checked the neighborhood west of the mall and observed a suspect matching the description given by mall security.
The suspect ducked into the backyards of Kingsley as other units set up a tight perimeter. K-9 officers were requested and responded quickly. Immediately upon initiating a K9 search, the suspect was found hiding in a large trash can with its lid closed.
Officers learned the suspect was 19 year-old Michael Swanson who was also wanted on a Felony warrant in another case. Swanson was arrested for attempted Motor Vehicle theft.
