MAZAMA, Wash. — Authorities used a K9 to help find 186 pounds of methamphetamine worth about $1 million in northern Washington state.
According to the Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office, Sgt. Gene Davis and his K9 Gunner assisted Homeland Security with a narcotics search on Monday.
Authorities said this is part of a cross-border drug smuggling investigation.
The K9 found two suitcases filled with meth in a remote area covered in brush in the Okanogan National Forest.
Sgt. Davis and Gunner have been a team for six years. The sheriff’s office said county residents helped raise enough money for the department to get two K9 units.
