Police used a K-9 to arrest a man suspected of breaking into a shorefront house in Bluff Park and vandalizing it Tuesday morning, according to authorities.
Officers first headed to the home in the 2700 block of East Ocean Boulevard around 8:35 a.m., Long Beach Police Department spokeswoman Nancy Pratt said.
“Officers responded, and with the assistance of a K-9, the male adult suspect was taken into custody,” Pratt said.
Paramedics took the man to the hospital, “due to a K-9 contact,” Pratt said. Police said the man vandalized the home while he was inside.
His name wasn’t immediately available because he hadn’t yet been booked into jail Tuesday morning.
