Tarpon Springs police 'book' four-legged fugitive

- The Tarpon Springs Police Department has just released a four-legged fugitive from custody that it picked up while on the lam.

Police say "Willow" had wandered away from her home, so police picked her up and took her to the police station where she was "booked and photographed."

"She was very cooperative with officers and probably one of the most friendly prisoners we've ever had in custody," police said on the department's Facebook page.

Willow is seen in photos the department posted being held up for her "mug shot" (because she was too short) and her paw prints were taken (digitally.)

Fortunately, Willow's owners were located and they "bonded her out." She is now home safe, police said.
