Bentley assisted his handler, Sergeant Wallace Kettledas in recovering a 38 revolver with six rounds of ammunition.

Police dog Bentley exhibited competent skills when he expertly followed a simple scent to locate a firearm buried in a yard in Bloemendal. It is alleged that on Saturday, February 1 at about 3.30pm, the anti-gang unit members received information of a firearm involved in an investigation.

The Port Elizabeth K9 Unit, Flying Squad and Public Order Policing searched the house and within minutes ‘Bentley’ located the firearm hidden inside a wall. The 38 revolver and six rounds of ammunition were retrieved by Bentley’s handler, Sergeant Wallace Kettledas.  No arrest was made and an enquiry docket was opened. The firearm will be sent to ballistics for further analysis.
