VAUGHN, N.M. (AP) — A drug-sniffing dog now is the only certified member of the police force in the small eastern New Mexico town of Vaughn.

Police Chief Ernest "Chris" Armijo decided to step down Wednesday after news stories reported that he wasn't allowed to carry a gun because of his criminal background.

"He decided the attention was distracting," said Dave Romero, an attorney for the town.

Finally. A good-looking, intelligent and highly trained police force. No public-service union either.

Heh. I doubt if he’ll be shooting the family pet while answering a 911 call.

Word is this dog once crashed in the door of the wrong house and shot the homeowner in front of his dog.

Since it’s only a drug dog, it’s probably a Labrador.

My guess is that the town just became a lot more dangerous for the cats.
