Ah, the sweet smell of justice. Or is that garbage? A Fargo police dog named Falco helped the North Dakota Highway Patrol track down an elusive suspect early Friday morning, according to a post on the Fargo Police Department's Facebook page. Falco and his nose led troopers from the interstate to a residential neighborhood, where they located the wanted man hiding inside a garbage can. Police say the suspect had run off from a traffic stop. And we here at Newser echo the sentiments of Fargo PD: "Great work, Falco!" (More North Dakota stories.)
