REDMOND, OR -- Redmond Police are welcoming their latest officer. K9 “Rogue” recently completed several weeks of certification training and is already assisting in arrests.
Earlier this week, Rogue and is human partner, Officer Josh Zundel, conducted a traffic stop. Rogue alerted to the presence of drugs and the vehicle was searched. Jimmy Burkhart, a 27-year-old Madras man, was arrested after a concealed handgun was found. A deeper search then turned up over 22 grams of meth and about $600 in cash.
Redmond Police say they are "very excited about having another drug detection dog to utilize in drug investigations."
