Ugandan Police Dogs Sniff Out Thief
Police officials and a thief in Uganda learn to never Underestimate the nose of a police dog. This story was recently published by Reuters on Yahoo News.
KAMPALA (Reuters) - Ugandan police dogs on the trail of a thief sniffed out an unlikely suspect -- a born-again preacher -- who was promptly arrested for robbing a remote village shop, a state-owned newspaper reported on Saturday.
Curious onlookers gathered as detectives released the dogs following a break-in at Igwaya village, in central Uganda.
The shocked residents watched as the dogs raced to a nearby shop owned by Pastor Livingstone Isanga, head of the local Redeemed Christian Church.
Hidden behind the counter were the stolen goods -- mostly bags of sugar and packets of bicycle spokes, New Vision said.
Local police chief Bruhan Mugido said the preacher would be prosecuted as soon as investigations were complete.
