NEWBURGH, N.Y. -- A new police dog has learned an old trick -- tracking down a parole violator outside New York City on its first day on the job. Bloodhound Tank Tebow is handled by Officer Curtis Hahne in Newburgh, 60 miles north of New York. Tank was donated to police Monday and began his career with the officer Tuesday. Two hours later police were dispatched to an apartment complex on a tip the parole violator was there. But by the time police arrived, the man had disappeared. Police said Tank followed the man's scent into a commercial area, through woods, across streets and into another apartment complex several blocks away. They say the man surrendered without incident. Tank is certified by the National Police Bloodhound Association. He'll also be used to find missing people.
