OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- The Lone Ranger can move over. Here comes the Nasal Ranger.

Ogden officials have bought a $1,400 olfactometer to sniff out odor violations following complaints about a local pet-food factory.

City administrator John Patterson says a city sniff squad, including volunteers, will be trained to use the device.

Neighbors have complained for years about American Nutrition Inc., which makes pet food.

But the company says it has just installed an exhaust scrubber to cut down on emissions from three ovens.

The Nasal Ranger is made in Minnesota.
