CHICOPEE, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

Chicopee police were able to arrest a breaking and entering suspect with the help of one of their police dogs on Friday.

According to Chicopee Officer Mike Wilk, around 8:35 p.m. police responded to a home on 292 Grove Street after a resident reported a man wearing a black hoodie was at their back door with the screen door open. 

The resident yelled, and the suspect, who was identified as 32-year-old Allyn Fye of Amherst, fled through backyards.

K-9 Finn and K-9 Officer Livingstone were called to the scene, and tracked Fye down the street near a broken fence, according to Wilk.

Officer Livingsonte heard leaves ruffling by the fence and ordered Fye to put his hands up. 

Wilk said Fye complied, and while he was being handcuffed he said to police "I'm the one you're looking for."

Fye was charged with attempted breaking and entering for a felony.

His bail was originally set at $500, but it was raised to $10,000 when he was transported to the Ludlow Correctional Facility. Fye was scheduled to be arraigned on Monday in Chicopee District Court.
