Dog helps lead game warden to suspect at Kansas lake
Ruby was rewarded for her work with a swim in the lake

Ruby the K-9 officer for Kansas game wardens may be pushing 10 years of old, but her sniffer works just fine.

That was evident earlier this month when Ruby played a key role in tracking down a man wanted by police in the south-central Kansas town of Wellington.

A Monday Facebook posting by Kansas Wildlife & Parks-Game Wardens says Ruby and her handler, Chris Stout, joined in the search for the suspect on Oct. 8 at Wellington City Lake.

Ruby found the suspect “face down in mud under dense brush.” For her hard work, Ruby was rewarded with a swim in the lake.

Good girl! T-bones and belly rubs will have to wait until Ruby dries off.

Man shot dead in Casselton broke into woman’s home
By Raya Quttaineh

The man killed in an early morning shooting in Casselton on Monday had broken into a woman’s apartment and violated a restraining order, according to Cass County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Jesse Jahner says 54-year-old Edwin Kester Jr. shot 58-year-old Randell Burton after Burton forced himself into an apartment on 37th Street Southeast at around 2 a.m.

“Mr. Burton forced his way into the residence through two locked doors,” Jahner said during a news conference Tuesday afternoon.

The home is connected to the Club 94 Bar & Grill.

A woman, whose name will not be disclosed, had told friends she was afraid Burton would come to her home. Kester Jr. says he volunteered to stay with her so she could get some rest.

    She just wasn’t into him any more, but her ammo sure was / is.

    Ruby IS a Good Girl! Lubs me a K9 V dirtbag story.

    Best way to enforce a restraining order is with a writ of FMJ…served center mass.

    H&K 45 may have the Browning internal designs, but it is just another plasticized abomination, not made of metal as His Most Saintliness JMB (Howitzer Be His Name) intended. Sorry, not sorry, it’s a generational thing.

    Here is a feel good story you won’t hear about:

    “MARS HILL, Maine (WAGM) – One man is in jail after what law enforcement determined to be a random stabbing outside Mars Hill IGA.

    The Aroostook County Sheriff’s Office say they received a 911 call at approximately 12:20 p.m. on Wednesday after an elderly woman was stabbed outside the grocery store. Deputies responded and arrested Ramadan Muhammad, 45, at his residence in Blaine without incident.

    Muhammad was transported to Aroostook County Jail in Houlton. He is charged with aggravated attempted murder, elevated aggravated assault, and reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon. His bail is set at $100,000.00 cash.

    The Sheriff’s Office was assisted on scene by the Maine State Police, the U.S. Border Patrol, Maine Warden’s Service, Mars Hill Fire Dept. and Central Aroostook Ambulance Service. The victim, who was not identified by the Sheriff’s Office, is currently listed in stable condition at a local hospital.”

    I wonder how many other small rural towns this occurs in and is kept local.

    • President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH Neanderthal B Woodman Domestic Violent Extremist SuperStraight says:

      Ramadan should have waited to celebrate until Ramadan.
      Too bad he didn’t make a threatening move against the Sheriff and get himself ventilated and deceased. That “Taxpayer’s Savings Shot” ain’t a small thing.
      Buuuuut, these cowards will only go against the weak, the helpless, the women.

      • Graybeard says:

        “…these cowards will only go against the weak, the helpless, the women.”

        Which is precisely why everyone has the God-given right to carry a firearm, and ought to.

        We can debate all day about it, but the fact is that a 22LR semi-auto using some CCI Varmint rounds is usable by even an elderly woman with arthritis, and still will make a coward rethink his plans.

    Dude, Burton, you ain’t no Richard, she’s just not that into you any more. Time to move on. Oh……wait…..nebber mind.

    This ain’t a feelz good, but it might be stolen valor…and over sentencing by judicial edict. File under: Dumb go’round.

    So suggesting to hang politicos will get you a long term stay at the gray bar motel. Noted.

    Thursday FBS. Major capital B.

    [Alec Baldwin cocked and fired a gun meant to be loaded with blanks on the set of a Western movie in Santa Fe on Thursday,
    hitting the film’s director and cinematographer.

    Halyna Hutchins, 42, was airlifted from the set of Rust,
    which began filming at Bonanza Creek Ranch this month,
    mid-afternoon to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque,
    where she succumbed to her injuries.

    Baldwin also hit the film’s director,
    Joel Souza, 48, according to the Santa Fe County sheriff.
    Souza remains in intensive care.
    The sheriff said in a statement the two
    “were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin, 68, producer and actor.”
    Baldwin reportedly did not know the prop contained live rounds.]
