Police dog eats evidence in candy caper
Associated Press Thursday, November 6, 2003
OSLO, Norway -- When Varg the police dog was sent into a candy factory to track down two intruders, his sense of taste got the better of his sense of duty. The German Shepherd nearly ate himself sick.
Leif Berglund, of the police in the central Norway city of Trondheim, said police were called to the Nidar candy factory after seven 13- to 15-year-olds were found helping themselves to candy after they broke in.
Five surrendered at once, but two ran away. So police sent Varg to follow their trail. What he found was the trail of candy they left behind, as well as more candy in the building.
"He helped himself greedily," said Berglund. He said he was so full of candy "that we had to immediately transfer him to a more urgent assignment" on the lawn outside the building.
Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
