According to a Sandwich police release, officers arrived at 85 Chase Road in East Sandwich around 4:45 p.m. to serve a default warrant to 28-year-old Gregory Losordo. Losordo's car was reportedly parked in back and a television was on in the home then turned off when police knocked on his door.
Officers announced themselves then entered the home. During a search, a locked bedroom was found and officers reportedly heard "commotion" inside, but the room was empty when they entered, police said.
According to police, Losordo had accessed an unfinished crawl space through the bedroom closet and refused to answer officers when they ordered him to come out.
A K9 Unit was requested to assist in removing Losordo from his hiding space. Yarmouth K9 Officer Michael Kramer and his dog Kosmo arrived at the scene and Kosmo was sent into the eves to retrieve Losordo, police said.
