Man’s own dog helps police bust him on drug charge

PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Police in central Alabama say a man’s own dog helped officers bust him on a drug charge.

Prattville Police spokeswoman Paula Barlow says the pooch named Bo followed his fleeing master, who was being pursued by officers. When the dog stopped and wagged his tail in tall grass, she says, officers found and arrested Edwin Henderson.

Barlow says the chase began when two drug officers arrived Wednesday with a search warrant and Henderson took off running.

After an investigator pointed at Henderson and told the dog “go get him,” that’s what Bo did.

Barlow says Henderson is charged with failure to obey police, manufacturing a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. It’s unclear if he has an attorney, and there’s no word on who’s taking care of Bo.
