An Assist for Lex

K-9 officer helps on Carmel call

K-9 Lex assisted with an arrest on Sept. 5 in Carmel. Officers were called to a home at about 5:30 a.m. after a male suspect fled the scene of a violent domestic incident.

A deputy presented an article of the subject’s clothing to Lex as a “scent article,” which the dog then used to track the man, who was found hiding in a grassy area of nearby woods.
