Mans Best Friend Dog? Leads Police to His Owner Suspected, Meth Maker

Prattville, Alabama -- Prattville police say the dog belonging to an accused methamphetamine maker led officers to his owner during the execution of a search warrant on Tuesday.

As officers arrived to the suspect's home at 1622 County Road 85, police say Edward Melvin Henderson ran out of the rear of his home and jumped off a 25-foot ravine.

According to authorities, Henderson's dog, Bo, a pit bull and huskie mix, then approached the officers.

An unnamed officer looked at the dog, pointed at Henderson and told the dog to "go get him."

"Bo without hesitation went down the ravine trailed by two drug enforcement investigators," Prattville police stated in a release.

After walking through a wooded area, officers found Bo wagging his tail and standing next to Henderson. Henderson was lying in tall grass.

Prattville police took Henderson into custody with no further incident, according to police. Methamphetamine and components of a meth lab were located in Henderson's home.

Henderson was charged with failure to obey police, two counts of first-degree unlawful manufacture of a controlled substance, two counts of second-degree unlawful manufacture of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bo is currently in custody of Henderson's family members. Autauga County Animal Control is periodically checking on the dog to make sure he is safe.
