Helsinki: A specially trained dog sniffed out
a USD 35,000 cash stash in the northern Finnish town of Kemi,
helping the police in a land-sale embezzlement investigation,
local police said on Thursday.

Without the dog`s help, the cash would likely still be
missing, the police said in a statement.
The dog was one of two in Finland`s police force to have
undergone special training for finding money, senior criminal
investigator Mikko Uimonen told agency, adding that the money was
found on business premises last week.
The sum would be returned to its rightful owner, the
police said.
