Two men who police said broke into a building to steal copper wiring got more than they bargained for: a room full of police officers. Police said 26-year-old James Ayers and Frederick Guilliee, 38, broke into the 40,000-square-foot building at about 6 p.m. Tuesday.
What they hadn't planned for is the Antioch police K-9 unit who was holding a training session there.
At the time of the break-in, an officer was hiding inside the building in a training exercise. Shortly thereafter, a K-9 officer announced that a dog was about to be released and that anyone inside should give themselves up or risk being bitten.
Ayers surrendered immediately, police said, and the K-9 officers found Guilliee hiding inside.
Police arrested the men on suspicion of commercial burglary.
