A K-9 officer and his partner are being credited with tracking down a Boston man accused of breaking into a building on Boylston Street Sunday.

Officers responding to a breaking and entering in progress on Boylston Street at 9:55 a.m. learned that a man had been seen trying to force his way into an apartment, police said. When they arrived at the scene, the officers spotted a man matching the suspect’s description climbing a fire escape and entering the building through a second-floor window.

That’s when police called in a K-9 handler and his partner, Vader, who found Sean Hess, 28, of Boston, hiding in a crawl space under a first-floor stairwell.

Hess has been charged with breaking an entering, resisting arrest, and trespassing.
