|Since you have dogs of your own and have said that this dog is aggressive, I would not advise you try to capture the dog. If these dogs are not vaccinated, you face infecting your own home and dogs with anything from parvo to intestinal parasites, and you face being bitten, or having your dog bitten. If this dog isn't vaccinated for rabies and you get bitten, you face a serious and life threatening illness.
When did you call animal control? It generally takes 2-24 hours for animal control to respond to a call, depending on the urgency of the situation. There are definitely animal control offices that are sub-par, but keep in mind that it sounds like you've only contacted them once, and there may have been a more pressing call, like a dog attack or a seriously injured animal that needed pick-up.
My suggestion would be to video tape the dog running at large, and if possible, video tape the dog acting aggressively, visit the animal control office in person, and show them the tape. Don't touch the dog, and don't try to bring it into your home or garage. It's very unlikely that they'll confiscate the animal on the first trip, it will take a few citations before they remove the dog from the home.
