ND K-9 Helps Track Down Man Wanted In Minneapolis

View Comments

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Police from Fargo and several surroundings areas tracked down and arrested a 20-year-old man wanted in Minneapolis with the help of the public and a police dog.

KFGO reports that police confronted Emmanuel Kennedy Wednesday morning after they received a tip he was at a south Fargo apartment complex.

Fargo Police Lt. Joel Vettel said Kimber, the newest member of the police department’s K-9 division, tracked Kennedy down. He was found hiding between trailers.

Vettel said several local police dogs and their handlers happened to be in Fargo for a training session and responded to the call.

Kennedy, who was wanted for felony probation violations in Minneapolis, now faces charges of resisting and obstruction.
