Troy Police credit K-9 'Aron' for gun arrest

TROY -- Troy Police are crediting their K-9 unit for a gun arrest in South Troy on Monday. 

Around 6 p.m., patrol units responded to a call at 334 Fourth Street for two armed men arguing in the street. 

Officer Robert Smith and his K-9 partner Aron were first at the scene.

A man matching the description of one of the men involved in the altercation took off down an alley off Ida Street.

Aron and Smith followed the suspect while another officer, Patrol Captain Brian Owens, cut off his escape route at the opposite end of the alleyway. 

According to investigators, the armed suspect ignored Owens orders to stop and show his hands. 

Aron caught the suspect and latched onto his leg while his fellow officers were able to handcuff the suspect.

During that time, officers saw the suspect throw a loaded handgun from his waist under a fence.  It was recovered.

The man, 31-year-old Quincy Smaltz of the Bronx, was charged with Obstruction of Governmental Administration, Resisting Arrest, and Criminal Possession of a Weapon.
