Recent Find:

Recently, K-9 Glow and SACH Brett Bowers conducted a search along the side of a highway in Georgia at the request of a local sheriff’s office for a firearm that had been used in an armed robbery. While searching the southbound side of the highway, K-9 Glow located one 9 mm pistol. In another investigation, the local law enforcement homicide unit developed new information in an investigation and requested ATF K-9 assistance. SACH Bowers and K-9 Glow responded and searched areas around the original scene for projectiles with negative results. K-9 Glow then located an additional .40 shell casing near the original scene.
