  1. Cops said the suspect on the loose is a “black male, black hoodie, black jeans.” Interestingly, there was a commercial burglar alarm very near this incident at the same time this happened. Related?

    The K-9 tracked the suspect from the La Quinta Inn area south to the Mall parking lot and then west but lost him.
