K9 Drago finds over 1.6 lbs of Marijuana

On April 22nd, Officer Brann and K9 Drago assisted Officer Wicklund at 1162 Reber St to track a domestic violence suspect. While officers tracked the suspect through the surrounding neighborhoods we learned that the suspect was from Minnesota with no transportation back home.

As the track continued, a stolen vehicle was reported in the 1400 block of Elm St. As Officer Brann was tracking with K9 Drago, he advised the other officers that the stolen vehicle may be related as the K9 track was headed in that direction.

Once Officer Wicklund heard the updated information, he requested that Brown County Communication Center send an alert to all agencies between Green Bay and the Twin Cities with a description of the stolen vehicle and suspect information from the DVO as the possible suspect in the stolen auto. Officer Brann, K9 Drago, and Officer Lynch lost the track of the suspect.

As they were walking back to their patrol vehicles, officers observed suspicious behavior at a residence as they believed it may possibly be the DVO suspect finding a ride from that area. What officers quickly learned is that unrelated suspects discarded contraband upon realizing police were nearby.

K9 Drago located the discarded contraband hidden underneath a vehicle in the driveway; which was 1.6 pounds of raw marijuana in vacuum sealed bags. As the investigation continued, officers conducted a consent search of the residence locating over 66 grams of additional marijuana. The drug Investigation is ongoing. Later in the day, the domestic violence suspect was later taken into custody in Marathon County, WI, on his way back to Minnesota driving the stolen vehicle.

"We are very pleased with the progress of our new department K9 Officers and K9’s," said Police Chief Andrew Smith. “This is the testament of the hard work of all the K9 Officers and K9’s. Just last Week K9 Officer Clark and K9 Roco located the escapee from Racine County. It is great to see the hard work from our officers and K9’s,” said Smith.
