Chicopee police dog tracked down breaking and entering suspect


A Chicopee police dog helped track down a suspect over the weekend.

Chicopee Police Officer Mike Wilk told 22News 32-year-old Allyn Fye, of Amherst, was arrested on a felony charge of attempted breaking and entering Friday night.

Wik said a homeowner on Grove Street called police at around 8:35 report seeing a man at his back door with the screen door open.

Wilk said the homeowner yelled at the suspect, causing him to run away through backyards in the neighborhood.

Chicopee Police K9 Finn tracked fresh foot prints to an area where there was a broken fence. When asked to come out with his hands up, Wilk said Fye came out over the fence and said, “I’m the one you’re looking for.”

Fye was processed at the police department and given a $500 bail. At the Ludlow Correctional Facility, however, his bail as raised to $10,000. Fye is scheduled to be arraigned on the felony charge Monday in Chicopee District Court.
