A 23-year-old man faces charges including heroin possession following an arrest involving a K9 unit Saturday morning.

A K9 officer had to pull Kyree Curtis of the 400 block of N. Bancroft Parkway in Wilmington from the stolen Chevrolet Malibu he sat in near the intersection of West 30th and North Harrison streets in Wilmington, according to police.

Officers spotted the suspect driving the stolen vehicle westbound on West 30th Street around 2:37 a.m.

When police ordered Curtis to exit the car, he refused and locked the door, according to reports.

Police say the suspect unlocked the door as they prepared to make a forced entry, but then Curtis tried to put the car back in drive causing the officer to deploy his K9 partner.

The suspect did not sustain any injuries.
