Sunol: Sheriff K-9 tracks down, subdues burglary suspect after tussle down hill

Queen uninjured, back on duty; arrestee treated for dog bites, booked into jail

Alameda County Sheriff's deputies arrested a man on suspicion of burglary in Sunol after he was captured by sheriff's K-9 Queen following a tumble down a steep hill and an intense struggle, authorities said on Friday.

Deputies were dispatched to Niles Canyon Road in unincorporated Sunol on a report of a burglary in progress, according to sheriff's Sgt. Ray Kelly.

They soon spotted their suspect -- later identified as Noorallah Kasir -- running away from the scene up a steep hill, according to Kelly. K-9 Queen then arrived at the scene and located the suspect after a lengthy track in the challenging terrain.

"K-9 Queen apprehended the suspect and they both rolled over 100 yards down the hill," Kelly said. "The suspect tried to fight K-9 Queen, but she would not let go. After an intense struggle with our K-9, Kasir was taken into custody."

Kasir, 52, of Hayward was treated for dog bites at a local hospital and then booked into the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin on suspicion of burglary. He was out on bail for an alleged robbery in Hayward and is also on felony probation, according to Kelly.

The criminal justice system in California is a mess. This is the type of person who shouldn’t be on the streets. When is the pendulum going to swing back to criminals having real consequences.

Pro-law -

It will start when the voters start reading what they're voting on. Way too many idiots voted for the "Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act" and the "Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act" because thought they would actually make neighborhoods and schools safer. While marketing the propositions this way should be criminal, at the end of the day the voters passed the propositions overwhelmingly.

Read before you vote people.

So is he being released from Santa Rita because of fear of Corona virus?

Glad he chose to run from the k9. Deserves what he got and hopefully what’s coming to him

This is why we want to move out of Calif even though we are Golden State natives and moderate Dems. It’s gone way far left and laws mean nothing, criminals have all the civil liberties, and People come here from everywhere to abuse the entitlement system.

Good job Queen!!! Now let’s wait for this criminal to sue about abusive police tactics and not observing the leash law.

All of the comments sadly do not reflect the compassion for humanity which I associate with living in our community.......Everyone should take a deep breath and recognize that this man was just trying to get money for his tuition and books so that he could continue his university studies and with top grades (which he would work very hard to earn) would eventually result in his admittance to medical school and future as a brain surgeon. (Eyyyyy Chihuahua that is a long sentence ! ). His alternate goal is to become a rocket scientist.
Fellow citizens of Pleasanton wake up and smell the coffee !!
By the way congratulations to K-9 queen for a job well done !!

Urmomz makes an excellent point. I would add never sign a petition either which no one ever reads because the people peddling it say it just qualifies to be on the ballot for the people to vote. The petitions are usually woefully unclear on the issue, marketing spin is used to get you to sign and the sponsors know deceptive measure names will get you to vote the way they want. Study the matter online first then only sign a petition if you support the measure’s objectives.
