A man suspected in a string of burglaries in Vancouver is in police custody.
Officers responded to a burglary in progress in the 3400 block of Columbia Street Wednesday morning.
Police spotted a suspect matching the description running away from the area on foot, detectives said.
Officers captured him after a short foot chase and K-9 track. He was hiding in a yard in the 2100 block of Washington Street.
He had stolen property in his possession, police said.
Detectives believe the man is responsible for a series of early-morning burglaries that have been occurring over the past month in several west side neighborhoods.
Police plan to release his identity after he is interviewed and booked into the Clark County Jail.
