(Douglas Steven Coin arrest photo 03-27-2018)
March 27, 2018 around 5:59 a.m. a resident on Liv 251 north of Route V saw someone enter onto his property and go behind an outbuilding. The property owner went outside and the suspect quickly fled in a small pickup and the property owner then gave chase.
The property owner called dispatch and reported the event. The property owner last saw the suspect vehicle near Ryan Lane and Mitchell Road in Chillicothe. The suspect had fled on foot as the vehicle became disabled.
Chillicothe Police responded and Chief Deputy Claypole was notified to begin the investigation of the potential attempted burglary. Deputy Chris Mueller was requested to bring K-9 Zaki to the scene to attempt a track of the suspect.
K-9 Zaki alerted to the possible presence of drugs on the suspect vehicle and then quickly began tracking the suspect. The LCSO and CPD staff went with Zaki and found the suspect very well hidden and crawled into some heavy weeds. The suspect immediately notified the officers he was unarmed and offered no resistance in being taken into custody.
Douglas Steven Coin, 34, Wheeling, was arrested for the alleged Attempted Burglary and has since been interviewed at the LCSO. An additional burglary has been identified and Mr. Coin is also under arrest for that incident and alleged felony driving while revoked. Additional investigation will continue through the day.
Mr. Coin will be taken to the Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail pending formal charges being filed. Mr. Coin is currently on parole in Missouri for a felony conviction of Tampering with a Motor Vehicle. The parole officer is being notified of the most recent incidents for a potential parole warrant to be issued.
This was very good work by all involved and kudos to K-9 Zaki and handler Deputy Mueller for prompt and positive action.
