Dog unearths loaded gun at North Carolina apartment complex


GREENVILLE, N.C. (WAVY) — Dogged determination, and detective work, unearthed a crime in North Carolina. 

Ryder, a pit bull puppy, is too young to be an official police K-9.


But he’s well on his way, after digging up a loaded gun outside his Greenville apartment complex Tuesday.

The fully loaded 38-special revolver was wrapped in a t-shirt.

Officers say they’ll take some help tracking down the owner of the gun — and may have more freelance work for Ryder in the future.
