Rapid City man found in doghouse after allegedly stealing liquor

RAPID CITY (AP) — A Rapid City man accused of stealing liquor from a convenience store ended with him being pepper sprayed and dragged out of a doghouse by police.

The Rapid City Journal reports that 22-year-old Joseph Decory faces several charges including theft.

Police say the Decory allegedly stole three bottles of liquor Wednesday night from a store. Authorities say once the suspect left the store, he hopped in to a van with three other people.

Police later arrested those people and found a barefoot Decory hiding in a doghouse. When he refused to come out, police used pepper spray on him.

Police say Decory's shoes were found at the store's parking lot.
