The bus has stopped at the edge of the road. Rick is running between the suitcases and sniffing around one, another, a third ... he's wagging his tail, sometimes looking back at his handler, who is encouraging him to continue. He's enjoying this hide and seek game, especially when he can smell something interesting in one of the suitcases. His excitement escalates - yes, this is the one! He lies down to indicate that he is sure. "Great dog, good dog!" says the handler and waves at the officers that a suitcase has been identified.
Happy Rick gets his toy and is already looking forward to a new game, but Rick just did a very serious job. Complying with the officer's orders, the Chinese owner of the suitcase opens it. Among several bottles of alcohol and some clothing, there is a yellow can. "What is inside?" the officers asks. "Food, just food," the owner insists. The officer takes his knife and cuts the tape, opens the top. The can is full of pangolin scales. But that is not all: a small rounded object, wrapped in yellow plastic, is hidden among them. The officer starts cutting the plastic tape and discovers an ivory bracelet. "Ivory!" he announces to people around him, shows the bracelet to everyone and gives a signal to the policemen next to him. They immediately arrest the man and escort him to their car. So this is what caught Rick´s attention - a single ivory bracelet and several handfuls of pangolin scales, all well wrapped in plastic, closed in a tin can and hidden in a suitcase. All illegal.
