Rookie canine cop sniffs out a suspect
By Brent Whiting, The Arizona Republic
For Cisco, a rookie on the Youngtown police force, it was an exercise of putting his nose to the grindstone. The shorthaired golden retriever was credited Thursday by Dan Connelly, the town’s police chief, for putting a a suspected drug dealer behind bars.
Cisco was put into service in late February as a drug-detection canine, Connelly said.
On Tuesday, authorities said, the dog sniffed out cocaine and methamphetamine after undercover investigators had established contact with the suspect.
