Officer Teresa McKenzie and her K9, Josh, were among those called to respond to a residential burglary on April 24.
They arrived at the 2700 block of Milwaukee St at 7:30 p.m. after a family reported that their home had been broken into, according to police. The family reported that a wallet, backpack and electronics were taken from the home.
