A car theft suspect was located by a police dog early Friday morning after attempting to run away from the police in east Colorado Springs.

Colorado Springs police said Dion Thompson was arrested on suspicion of aggravated motor vehicle theft after being pulled over in a stolen vehicle around 1 a.m. on the 3900 block of Galley Road.

Thompson, the driver, pulled into a parking lot of an apartment complex and exited the car before jumping a fence and fleeing south on Galley Road, police said.

Officers set up a perimeter in the area and located Thompson a short time later with several K9 Units, the police said. Thompson was transported to a hospital for treatment, police said.

Two passengers in the stolen vehicle were detained, the police said. Their identities, along with Thompson's age, were not released.

The vehicle was returned to the owner, police said.
