Rambo’s excellent adventures

LPPD photo

The LaPorte Police Department K-9 Division has a little story to tell about Rambo’s full day on Wednesday, July 18 — and the day wasn’t even over yet:

“Rambo had a busy day today. Started the morning off by assisting with apprehending a burglary suspect on the west side of town, followed by finding a stolen and ditched cell phone for a victim.

“The suspect of the burglary ran from police earlier in the morning but decided to cooperate after seeing and hearing Rambo. The suspect laid down on the ground and was taken into custody without further incident.

“The cellphone was stolen from a female victim. The suspect walked away and hid the phone on a car trailer after seeing police respond. Rambo was instructed to find the phone. He searched the area and found the phone by following the fresh scent of human scent. The suspect was then arrested for theft.”

Good boy, Rambo! You deserve an extra treat today — maybe a vanilla ice cream cone?

    Thank you for the nice story about LaPorte City’s K-9 Rambo. Great job by both the officer and the K-9! Keep up the good work!
    I laughed at the article writer’s comment about rewarding the K-9 with some ice cream. When I was a K-9 handler many moons ago, I stopped at a local ice cream store and got an ice cream for my K-9. We drew a small crowd of spectators watching the police dog eat his treat.
