An Alleged Meth Maker Got Busted When His Dog Led Police Right to Him

1 minute read

Every dog has its day. The day when he leads the police straight to his alleged methamphetamine-producing owner, that is.

When an Alabama pooch found himself in a police chase, he unwittingly led officers straight to his hiding owner, thanks to a vigorous tail wag, CNN reports. Police in Pratville executed a search warrant this week at the home of a suspected meth maker, Edward Melvin Henderson, who fled toward a wooded area behind his home when officers arrived. His pit bull-husky mix, Bo ran after Henderson after investigators told the dog to “go get him,” CNN reports.

Investigators on the chase lost sight of the dog and were close to giving up when they saw an excitedly wagging tail—Bo had found his owner hiding in tall grass. Police promptly arrested Henderson, who was charged with failure to obey police, two counts of unlawful manufacture of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Man’s best friend Bo is not.
