Dog scares away would-be robber

GLENWOOD, MD (NBC) - Police have given credit to Ginger the dog for thwarting an attempted robbery at her owner's liquor store on Friday night.

Just before 8 p.m. Friday, a man wearing a ski mask and dark clothing walked into Glenwood Wine and Spirits and aimed a gun at the clerk.

Ginger began growling and ran towards the suspect, scaring off the masked man.

"You'd think that being chased out the door by a dog when you're carrying a gun would be embarrassing to the guy," owner Dan Cewe said.

Ginger is six years old, and she's never reacted like this before when someone's come in the store.

"Maybe it was an odor," Cewe said.
