A man being sought in a hit-and-run case was caught in a doghouse by — what else? — a police dog, authorities said.

"Now he's in our doghouse," police Cmdr. Robb Lamoureux said.

Lamoureux said parents began calling police about 7 a.m. Monday as a vehicle rammed numerous cars in a neighborhood while children were getting ready to board a school bus in this town about 30 miles north of Seattle.

The vehicle was gone when police arrived, but officers were summoned again after the vehicle crashed through a fence. A tracking dog led officers to a man in a doghouse and he was arrested and jailed, Lamoureux said.

Todd Aron Fowler, 35, was being held for investigation of hit-and-run driving, second-degree assault and a drug law violation with bail set at $15,000, according to the Snohomish County Jail's Web site.

A suspected bank robber was arrested after officers assisted by canines found him hiding in a dog house, authorities said.

Steven John Simmons, 26, of Mammoth Lakes, Calif., was arrested without incident Tuesday night, about 40 minutes after the holdup at the Bank of America.

The Douglas County sheriff's office said Simmons was tracked to a residence with the help of K-9 "Kilo," and his handler, Sgt. Joe Duffy.

About 15 officers and another police dog assisted in the search, the sheriff's office said.

Authorities said the suspect's clothing, weapon and cash were recovered some distance away. The amount of cash taken in the robbery was not released.

Simmons was jailed on suspicion of robbery with a deadly weapon, being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm and altering the serial number of a firearm.

Bail as set at $250,000 cash.
