Police K-9 Officer M.P. Armstrong responded to the area of Wichard Road on Monday night to assist the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office with an armed robbery that had just occurred. When Officer Armstrong arrived, he attempted a K-9 track from the robbery location. The track's scent covered over a quarter mile through a trailer park and ended at brick duplex. Police K-9 "Gauge" led Officer Armstrong and the deputies to the back of the residence and stopped at a moped. He then indicated on the seat of the moped. Hidden inside of the seat compartment were two handguns. Officers made contact with the individuals inside of the apartment, which later resulted in an arrest.
Excellent work by the K-9 Gauge and his partner Officer Armstrong.
