The new Cranbrook and area police dog was successful in tracking a subject after the 7-11 was robbed early Monday morning.
Just after 4 a.m. the 7-11 store on Victoria Street in Cranbrook reported they had been robbed by a subject wielding a knife, who made off with cash and cigarettes.
A police dog, fresh from training, was called in.
The dog, named Denim, tracked the subject all the way to his residence in the 2500 block of 12th Street North. A 22-year-old male was arrested and is currently in custody awaiting court.
The subject has a criminal record and was released from jail in October for Break and Enter.
Denim had just completed his training in Innisfail Alberta and this was his first call!
