Henry County Sheriffs Office K-9 Elinor had a busy weekend. On Friday, July 29th MSHP requested to sniff a vehicle they had stopped in the 400 block of NW K, positive alert/ Trooper located suspected narcotics, meth, Fentanyl, several Xanax pills and other miscellaneous pills, charged with distribution.
On Saturday the 30th Deputies Baker and Weber along with Cpl. Brandt responded to a burglary in progress in the 900 block of NE E Hwy.
Two subjects were taken into custody, the third was hiding in thick brush. Deployed K9 Elinor for an area search for the hiding subject. K9 Elinor scent located the subject and took us to him where he surrendered without incident.
After locating the subject, K9 Elinor was used to free air sniff the vehicle for narcotics and gave a positive alert. During the vehicle search a substance believed to be meth was located along with a pipe commonly used to smoke meth.
Good job K-9 Elinor in assisting our staff and the Highway Patrol with getting drugs and criminals off our streets.
