SHELBY, N.C. - Neighbors said one of the suspects in a Shelby home burglary tried to hide from police by finding a nearby creek and digging a hole to hide in.
But that effort to find a hiding spot did not work.
Police arrested Jonathan Ford, Arlando Griffin, Rashad Levels and Gardner-Webb University student Amber Yow.
Police said all were involved in a break-in on Cabaniss Farm Drive but it was Levels who tried to kick in the back door.
Police said Levels ran away when he spotted a homeowner inside.
A police dog found Levels hiding in a hole he dug along a creek bank.
The hole collapsed on him and he was bitten by the dog.
Police caught up to the other three in a car several miles away.
