A police dog who had lost the scent of an armed robbery suspect located a different crime instead reports Fox News in Boston. The dog led police into a Stop & Shop chasing a masked man who had robbed a nearby Shell station. The dog lost the trail, but did find a homeless man who had shoved a bunch of meat in his pants.
Police said they encountered Brown shortly after and the dog, smelling the meat, immediately approached Brown.
Police say they found nearly $68 worth of meat stuffed in Brown’s pants.
Brown has been charged with receiving stolen property worth less than $250 and disorderly conduct.
The man has pleaded not guilty.
