A smelly case: Dog poop footprints lead police to drunken driving suspect
DURHAM, N.C. – Dog isn’t this man’s best friend.
Police in North Carolina say Josue Herrios-Coronilla, 18, drove his black Camaro on the wrong side of the road Wednesday and crashed into the yard of a man who owns four dogs. Police found crushed bushes, a damaged fence, an inoperable car – and a fresh shoe print in a pile of dog feces.
Following an odoriferous trail down the street, Sgt. Dale Gunter noticed a white van driving toward him.
When he asked the passenger to step out, he noticed the smell of alcohol on the man’s breath and evidence all over his shoes.
Herrios-Coronilla was charged with driving while impaired and drinking underage and released on $1,500 bail. (source)
