New K9 Drug Detection Dog in Lane Co., Feb. 15

The Lane County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce the addition of a new Drug Detection Dog to our canine unit! Bear is a 2-year-old German Shepherd certified to detect dangerous drugs, including Fentanyl. Bear and his handler, Detective McQuillan, will be utilized in patrol investigations as well as proactive work with shipping companies and the Eugene Airport. They are partnering with local schools in the county to help maintain safe campuses. They will also assist the Lane County Jail to prevent drugs from entering the facility. Bear started working less than a month ago and has already assisted with the seizure of a half-pound of cocaine, a half-pound of Fentanyl, and five and a half pounds of meth. Good boy Bear! The Lane County Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit is funded by community donations. All donations go directly to the K9 program to supply food, veterinary care, and equipment. Donations to keep their good work going can be made at https://client.pointandpay.net/web/lanecountysheriffdonations Learn more about all our canines at https://www.lanecounty.org/government/county_departments/sheriff_s_office/about_us_-_now_and_then/police_services_division/k9_unit
