SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) - A suspected drug dealer is being charged after a dog on his fourth day of duty with the Springfield Police Department found him between a couch and a wall.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1HqdLzK) police responded to a Springfield home expecting to find 26-year-old Kody Allen Hodge, a convicted felon who had outstanding warrants for his arrest and who officers suspected was armed.

Hodge didn’t answer the door, and police searched the house with 23-month-old Flex. He sniffed out the suspect, and officers seized narcotics, cash and two firearms, among other items.

Hodge faces several charges including delivery of heroin and marijuana, and possession of methamphetamine.

Flex has been on the force since completing training May 11.
