Tracking dog leads deputies to armed robbery suspect

Posted: Updated:
BRADLEY COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

Patrol deputies, assisted by a tracking K-9, took a suspect into custody following an armed robbery of the Kangaroo Mart at 2300 Springplace Road.

Deputies responding to the 911 call were told the suspect first entered the business around 1:30 Sunday morning and asked for the gas pump to be switched on. 

When the clerk went to conduct other duties in the store she was confronted by the suspect who was armed with a shotgun and demanded the store's cash.

The clerk described the suspect as a white male who left in a dark colored older model truck.  While the investigation was being made a call was received at the communications center of a vehicle accident in the 4200 block of Trewhitt Road.

Responding deputies arrived and quickly realized the abandoned vehicle matched the clerk's description from the armed robbery.

A tracking dog was brought to the scene and lead deputies to a location near Trewhitt Road and Armstrong Road where they had contact with Scott Edward Poole. 

Poole, who is 44 years old and has an Old Fort address, was the registered owner of the pickup truck. 

He was taken into custody for Aggravated Robbery, Theft over $500, and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony.

The Criminal Investigations Division is continuing investigation of the robbery.
