BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

The Beaverton Police Department’s newest K-9 has made his first capture.

Early Thursday morning, Officer Anthony Bastinelli and his K-9 partner Rizzo responded to a car dealership on the 9600 block of Southwest Canyon Road.

Two people were spotted at the business and there was concern they may have been attempting to steal a car.

As police approached, the two people ran away. Rizzo tracked them down on Canyon Road.

Officers said the potential suspects were two minors who were out after curfew. They were not arrested.

This was Rizzo’s first capture since he was certified as a police dog. Rizzo arrived in Beaverton from Slovakia earlier this year.
