The "K-9" police truck of the Vaughn, N.M. Police Department is shown in driveway of former Vaughn Police Chief Ernest "Chris" Armijo Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2012 photo. Vaughn officials announced Wednesday that Armijo resigned after news stories reported that he was not allowed to carry a gun due to his criminal record, leaving the town with just one certified member on its police- force a drug-sniffing dog named Nikka. The town's only other officer isn't certified and pleaded guilty to charges of assault and battery last year. (AP Photo/Russell Contreras) less
