Business owners show some ‘puppy’ love

Red Mountain Arsenal, a local ammunition manufacturer that started its business at the Roswell Air Center in June 2019, decided to repay some of the support it says the Roswell Police Department has shown the start-up.

“What we asked was, you guys have supported us, what can we do to help you out?” said Alfred “Fred” Alvarado, vice president and co-owner of the company. “Give to one of your programs or something? They said, we just got our dogs back. How about some dog food because they eat like horses. I said, sure.”

Alvarado and Red Mountain President Pete Charnisky, also a company owner, delivered two big bags of food Wednesday to the Roswell Police Department headquarters at 128 W. Second St. They met with the two new K-9 members of the force, as well as the officers who work with them.

The police department just reestablished the K-9 unit in May, with the help of donations from the community. The trained dogs are “sniffers,” able to locate narcotics or track down people.
