Dog helps catch robbers

A dog's keen nose helps in catching a robbery suspect.

State police say two men went into a Little Caesars Pizza shop at 1013 Governors Place in Bear Sunday morning wearing masks. The first man, 18-year-old Devin Parker of Philadelphia, jumped the counter and implied he had a handgun. The store employees were ordered into the bathroom while the second suspect, 19-year-old Wyatt Davis of Bear, grabbed some cash. The two then fled out the back door.

Police found the two on Boggs Street, sweating and out of breath. An officer had his K9 track a scent from Little Caesars that led to a pile of clothes that the suspects wore during the robbery. Troopers found Parker's drivers license in the clothing, and the k9 tracked the scent to where Parker and Davis were caught.

Both are charged with robbery and wearing a disguise during commission of a felony. They're in Howard Young prison on $60,000 bail.
