A call comes in to Officer James Stahl and fellow officers reporting a nearby carjacking. Upon arriving to the scene the officers spot the car crashed in a residential area and quickly begin their pursuit of the suspect. With the help of a K9 unit, the officers begin looking for the suspect who was last seen jumping walls in nearby backyards. Eventually, the suspect is spotted from afar and the chase intensifies. The suspect makes his way into a cluttered backyard filled with junk. Officer Stahl spots the suspect hiding in an old refrigerator and instantly the K9 dog is sent in to seize him. The suspect is no match for the skillfully trained police dog and is charged with carjacking, aggravated assault, armed robbery, and unlawful flight.
