K-9 MC is an ATF Explosives Detection Canine assigned to the Chicago Field Division with Special Agent Canine Handler (SACH) Daniel Durkin. His job is to find explosives, guns and ammunition. K-9 MC is also an ATF Search Enhanced Evidence K-9 (S.E.E.K.) able to work off leash up to 150 yards away from his handler and detect more than 19,000 distinct odors.
During a recent search warrant in Chicago, K-9 MC alerted SACH Durkin to evidence he found in the master bedroom closet of a suspect’s home. Thanks to K-9 MC’s keen search skills, ATF agents recovered a Glock 19 9mm pistol with 16 rounds of ammunition in the magazine.
K-9 MC also located more evidence when searching the resident’s basement closet. He recovered a Colt Python .357 revolver, 19 rounds of .357 caliber ammunition, 6 rounds of .38 caliber ammunition, 19 rounds of 38 special ammunition and 23 9mm rounds of ammunition.
