Police dog easily tracks down steak thief after New Brunswick grocery larceny
SAINT JOHN, N.B. — A police dog had an extra edge tracking down an alleged thief on Tuesday: The suspect was carrying stolen steaks.
Police in Saint John, N.B., say they responded to a theft call at a local store and spotted a man in his mid-20s running away.
They said he was wearing a dark toque, grey jacket “and carrying three club packs of steaks.”
Police deployed a service dog, Diesel, to search for him.
A man was soon found and arrested for theft.
The 29-year-old man is to appear in provincial court to answer the charges.
“The steaks were recovered from the suspect. Probably not the best thing to be carrying when a determined police service dog is tracking you down,” the Saint John police said in a release Wednesday.
