    Dogs Help Cops Find Suspect Through the Woods and Swamp
    Richard Orlowski, 30, of South Windsor. He’s been charged with second-degree burglary and third-degree criminal mischief.

    A Vernon resident can partly thank the dog for helping cops track a burglary suspect through the woods, and a swamp, to a mobile home.

    The dog started barking and led the owner of the Cemetery Road house upstairs on Friday afternoon, where they found that a window had been forced open, police said.

    The resident saw a male outside running off and called police.

    After a 50-minute chase into the woods through the woods and water, the officer and his dog, Pito, found the suspect, Richard Orlowski at a mobile home on Stonewood Terrace.

    Police arrested Richard Orlowski, 30, of South Windsor. He’s been charged with second-degree burglary and third-degree criminal mischief. Bond was set at $50,000.
