Detroit police showed up to a house with a search warrant Wednesday, and the suspect threw a bag over the fence. That bag held crack cocaine, and a dog, Nipsey, was in the yard on the other side of the fence—and started eating the bag's contents. The dog's family was in the yard at the time, but his owner had no means of transportation, so police got in touch with the Michigan Humane Society field services team and MHS investigators drove him and his dog to a nearby veterinary center, ClickOnDetroit reports. Fortunately, Nipsey was saved after veterinarians induced vomiting; the dog will suffer no ill effects, WXYZ reports, and was reunited with his family the following day.

"I'm really proud of the team internally, I'm extremely proud of the Detroit Police Department for contacting us and working with us to get this dog care, and I'm proud of an owner who loves his dog and takes great care of his male pit bull that lives in the house with him," a field services manager tells Fox 2 Detroit. MHS also covered the vet bill, the Detroit News reports. (More Detroit stories.)
