Busted! Labrador retrieves owner's pot to cops

/ Source: The Associated Press

J.D. the Labrador retriever meant well, but he’s landed his owner in a mess of trouble.

Police say his owner was playing Frisbee golf with two friends at a suburban Dallas-Fort Worth course Monday when a police officer arrived.

The officer thought he smelled burning marijuana, so he asked the men for identification and began checking for outstanding warrants.

J.D., apparently sensing the party was over, waded into nearby Bear Creek, retrieved a plastic bag containing pot and brought it to the officer.

The black Lab’s 25-year-old owner was charged with possessing drug paraphernalia. One of his companions was charged with marijuana possession. The third member of the party wasn’t charged. J.D. was turned over to him.
