Authorities in Kalamazoo say they only had to look in the trash to nab a suspect.

The city's public safety department says in a statement that officers were told early Monday that a man reportedly was carrying a gun in a street.

Officers say the man fled when they arrived, and a police dog helped them find a man hiding in a garbage-filled curbside trash can.

Authorities say a gun they think he was carrying was found in another trash receptacle nearby.

The man was arrested on felony gun charges and a misdemeanor resisting arrest charge. He was being held at the Kalamazoo County Jail.
