A police dog named Stryker has helped the Lewisville Police Department in Texas, record it’s largest drug bust after the dog sniff out about 270kg of methamphetamine worth an estimated $1.2 million in street value. According to the Lewisville Police Department, Stryker was called into action after police officers saw a suspicious tractor trailer parked near a major highway in Lewisville, Texas last week.
The Lewisville Police Department wrote on Facebook: “The Lewisville Police Department seized more than 270 kilograms (approximately 595 pounds) of methamphetamine in one of the largest drug busts in the department’s history. It is also the largest drug bust in the career of K-9 Stryker.
“At approximately 3 p.m. on February 23, 2020 Lewisville Police Department K-9 Officer Pat Robey received a call to assist another agency with an anonymous tip about a suspicious tractor trailer located near a major highway. Officer Robey deployed his K-9 partner Stryker to conduct a free air sniff of the tractor trailer and K-9 Stryker alerted to the presence of narcotics.
“Officer Robey offered the Lewisville Police Department as a safe location to continue the search of the tractor trailer. Officer Robey assisted in the search and officers located the methamphetamine in a hidden compartment. “
As compensation, Stryker got a good treat. “We understand he got quite a few extra treats, a lot of scratches and as much time as he wanted with his favorite toy,” the Texas police wrote on its Facebook page.
