Lakewood Police K9 Shim Sniffs Out Drugs in Car, Leading to Charges

Lakewood Police K-9 Shim’s sniffing skills seem to be on target.

The drug-sniffing officer was summoned to conduct a narcotics sniff on a vehicle during a traffic stop, and it was alerted to narcotics within the vehicle, police confirmed to TLS.

A band-aid wrapper containing an unknown sticky blue substance (suspected crushed Xanax mixed with other unknown drugs) was discovered within the cup holder of the driver’s vehicle, police said.

He was issued summonses for drug-related offenses pending a future court date.

During the past week, the Street Crimes Unit comprised of Det/Sgt Reyes and Detectives Richardson and Letts has made 3 arrests for various narcotics related offenses.

Police say the Lakewood K9 sniffs have already lead to at least five narcotic-related arrests.

  1. I’ve heard of people who sniff cocaine and other drugs, but I didn’t know dogs sniff this stuff too!
    What happens if a dog is caught sniffing drugs? 2-3 years in the dog house? Or maybe the dog is sent to an extended drug rehab program? Or maybe both?
