NORTHAMPTON, MASS. (WHDH) - A Massachusetts State Police K9 tracked a domestic assault suspect across a highway and through several yards before finding him hiding out in Northampton on Wednesday morning, officials said.

Sgt. Gary Hebert’s K9 partner Ruger is being credited with locating the suspect about a quarter-mile from the scene of the alleged crime.

In a Facebook post, state police said, “Hard to hide from that nose! Well done Sergeant Hebert and Ruger!”

The suspect was taken into custody without incident by Northampton police.
