A Suffolk County Sheriff's Office K-9 sniffed out a million dollars during a recent narcotics raid.
The team was called in to a building by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
The Sheriff's Deputy "K-9 Bob" located six packages of seized funds hidden in various locations and rooms.
K-9 Bob is a Belgian Malinois. He is 2 and a half years old and has been with the Suffolk County Sheriff's Office since 2010. Deputy Sheriff Greg Negra is his handler.
The currency was entered into evidence and remains in the custody of the DEA Task Force.
The Suffolk County Sheriff's Office has three deputy and two corrections canines. In addition to performing narcotics searches to aid in investigations, they also sniff out suspected drugs within the county correctional facilities, locate suspects and victims, and find evidence at or near crime scenes.
"Highly trained dogs like Bob are totally dedicated and thrive on success in whatever mission they are given," Sheriff Vincent DeMarco said.
