Canine cop assists in arrests PDF Print
Tuesday, 18 December 2007 22:08

Narcotics officers in Avery County were busy last week.

Leah Robinson and Laura Patrick of Charleston and William Kalivas of New Orleans were charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia during a traffic stop. Canine cop Riki assisted. Riki helped officers charge Matthew Sidwell of Murfeesboro Tennessee with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia the following day. During his campaign last year, Avery Sheriff Kevin Frye promised a tough stance on drugs offenders. With the addition of two narcotics dogs, his office has been able to deliver. An exterior sniff by a drug dog can give officers probable cause to search vehicles- a valuable asset in the local war on drugs, Frye has said.
