A K-9 dog is earning his keep in Scott County. Last September the Scott County K-9 unit assisted the Miner Police Department with a vehicle search. The dog sniffed out almost $150,000 in cash. Since the money was found to be related to illegal drug activities, it was forfeited, and Scott County's share was $59,000.
Now a portion of the money has been used to purchase a new vehicle for the K-9 unit, replacing a high-mileage car. That's an impressive record for a four-legged, furry member of the sheriff's department. Meanwhile, the dog is ready for his next assignment -- and hasn't even thought of asking for a bonus.
