Some more details about the AutoZone robbery on 86th Street in Brooklyn: K9 pup Blaze helped find a couple of the suspects. According to the Daily News, "Two of the robbers tried to hide inside the store's drop-down ceiling, police sources said. But the German shepherd easily sniffed them out, and barked to show his comrades the hiding spot." Blaze's barking scared one robber out, but "The other one, a 25-year-old woman, fought with cops - but Blaze put a stop to that. That robber ended up with her arm in a sling as a result of Blaze's bite." The third suspect tried to pose as an AutoZone employee, but was busted when he didn't know the store's phone number. Fun fact: Blaze also really loves guns and looks supercute when carrying one.
