A three-pound Chihuahua mix named Tink helped police put a fugitive in the clink.
The dog's Christmas Day adventure began when four suspects who were fleeing police crashed a stolen minivan into a hillside in this Sierra foothill town east of Sacramento, and one of them fled.
Tink, a Pomeranian and Chihuahua mix, found him hiding under a neighbor's motor home and chased him into the woods, said Wendy Anderson. The dog belongs to her son.
Her son and husband directed a law enforcement helicopter to where the 20-year-old man was hiding.
"The Chihuahua gave him up," California Highway Patrol officer Jeff Herbert said.
