Mundelein Police Department Canine Titan has had three successful tracks and located four offenders within the past two weeks, the department said.
“We wanted to share with you some of Titan’s most recent activity. In the last two weeks Officer Kroll and Titan have had three successful tracks where four offenders have been located,” the Mundelein Police Department said Wednesday morning on Facebook.
On November 22, Mundelein Police Department Officer Kroll and his canine partner, Titan, responded to assist the Round Lake Police Department in tracking several subjects who fled from a vehicle.
One of the suspects was on parole for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and Titan tracked ¼ mile to a residence where the suspect and another suspect, who was wanted for aggravated battery to a police officer, were found hiding in an attic.
Five days later on November 27, Officer Kroll and Titan assisted the Lake County Sheriff’s Office in tracking a suicidal person, who was also wanted in a domestic battery, on Gilmer Road. Titan was able to locate the subject and he was taken into custody.
On Tuesday, a car rolled over near West Hawley Street and Route 176 in unincorporated Mundelein and the driver fled the scene. The Lake County Sheriff’s Office called Officer Kroll and Titan to assist and the canine located the offender, who was found to be under the influence, following a one mile track into the woods.
“Great job Officer Kroll and Titan!” the Mundelein Police Department said on Facebook.
