UND's New Police Dog Helps Make First Arrest

Posted: Updated:

He's not even an official member of the force yet, but "Ben" the police dog is already helping fight crime on campus.

Early Friday morning UND PD stopped a vehicle on the 400 block of North Fifth Street for a traffic violation.  Officers became suspicious after the driver quickly exited the vehicle, acted nervously, and made inconsistent statements.

After calling in the new K-9 unit, Ben, a two-year-old yellow Labrador retriever, alerted to the vehicle. During the search of the vehicle, officers say they discovered components commonly used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

Trent Johnston, 44, was charged with one count of driving under revocation, one count of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, and one count of possession of a controlled substance. 

Marnee Vanscoy, 38, was charged with one count of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, one count of ingestion of a controlled substance, and one count of possession of methamphetamine. 

Ben will officially be sworn-in as a member of the University Police Department at Monday, August 11th, at the Chester Fritz Auditorium.
