Suspected meth dealer's dog helps police track him down

PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) - A suspected meth dealer who fled from authorities found himself in custody because of the betrayal of man's best friend, his own dog. Authorities say Edward Melvin Henderson was at a residence on County Road 85 when the Prattville Drug Enforcement Unit arrived with a search warrant.

The man quickly bolted for the back door where, just beyond, a 25-foot ravine separated him from freedom. Henderson jumped right into it and kept running.

Officers were approaching the ravine to find the fleeing suspect when the man's dog, a mixed breed Pit Bull and Huskie, ran right up to them. Pit Bulls have gained a reputation for controversy and, in some cases, have even been shot dead by law enforcement. But when the cream colored pooch later identified as Bo approached the officers, they drew their fingers and aimed them straight at the suspect.
