Paducah K-9 Officer “Edo” celebrates birthday with drug bust
On June 23, the Paducah Police Department’s K-9 Officer “Edo” celebrated his 6th birthday by going to work as always. Right before 10pm, a Childress police officer called for K-9 assistance on a call on Highway 287. The vehicle in question had California plates, and was pulled over initially for speeding. Edo gave a positive alert on the vehicle and search turned up 126 pounds of marijuana, an amount that carries a street value of $250,000. Edo, pictured here with Paducah Police Chief Roy Rodriguez, seemed to think that was a pretty great way to celebrate his birthday. Photo courtesy Paducah Police Department.
