Police Dog Leads Police to Robbery Suspects

POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. (AP) — A police dog in the southeast Missouri town of Poplar Bluff is credited with a key role in the arrest of two armed robbery suspects.

KFVS-TV reports that the robbery happened Wednesday at a Casey’s General Store.

Police caught up to the alleged robbers after a police dog with the K-9 unit tracked their scent to a parking lot, where investigators found tire tracks on the pavement. Those tracks matched tire tracks in a nearby grass lot that led to the arrest of two suspects.
