Mar 7 2020, 7:54 pm

A hardworking Toronto Police Service officer tracked down four suspects wanted in connection with an armed robbery at Yorkdale Shopping Centre Friday.

How did the officer do it? He used his nose, of course.

Jango the police dog got a shoutout on Twitter after successfully finding the remaining  teens who allegedly used weapons to smash display cases and rob stores at the mall.

On Friday, all Yorkdale stores were closed as the mall was placed on a hold-and-secure after the robberies. Police initially thought shots may have been fired, but later said the suspects used firearms to break open display cases.

One suspect was arrested Friday, and police said more remained at large who fled through the parking lot. Jango found them, and police said Saturday a total of five people were arrested.
