REST IN PEACE BELOVED RUDD

"K9 Rudd was a dual purpose K9 with the New York State Police in service from May 2015 to October 2021. He was involved in and successful in numerous searches for criminals, missing people, weapons and bombs. Rudd battled numerous health issues throughout his career, but always wanted to go to work. He passed away suddenly in February 2022 and is still sorely missed."

“My dog is more than my partner you see, because he is a very good friend to me. He’s the nose I don’t have, the eyes I have not, he’s the best partner most cops would want. Day by day we do what we do best, his four paws never seem to rest. He always does whatever I ask, seeming to enjoy every task. I know one day his work will be done, but in the heavens he will run. For my dog is more than a partner to me, my dog is my best friend and he always will be.”

Forever in our hearts, #K9 Rudd.
Gone, but never forgotten.

Thank you for your service.

K9 Sammy, Chicago Police Department- EOW 4/8/22

Our hearts are broken to learn of the passing of a member of our Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. family.  K9 Sammy was a proud participant and Mr. April 2015 in the Vested Interest in K9s calendar.   He overcame many medical issues all with a smile on his face.  He served with the Chicago Police Department with his beloved partner, Officer Candace Milovich from 2011-2019.

Run free beautiful boy, we will always remember and love you.

From Officer Milovich:
"Retired Chicago Police K9 Sammy (Jan 2011- Jul 2019) crossed over the rainbow bridge this afternoon.
My beautiful, smart, stoic, stubborn and ever devoted Sammy was 1 of a kind.
Despite many health issues over his nearly 14 year life he never knew what quit was. No matter what I asked of him be it search for a bad guy to learning to walk again he did it without reservation,  knowing I was there by his side no matter what.
The trials his body endured when he was 4 took their toll and he just couldn't anymore although to the very, very end, he tried.
I am utterly shattered. Heart broken in a manner I won't recover from for a very long time.
Sammy, you are & always will be the very bestest boy. I don't know right now how to stop crying or how proceed without you at my side.
You were oh so loved by so many.
A MEGA HUGE thank you to everyone who came to help guide me thru this horrible day. I could not have gotten through this without your love, kindness, support and shared tears.
To all those who have called or texted. It means so much to me. To know others recognized the amazing partner Sammy was and share in my grief.
Run free my bestest boy. You were one of a kind and I will miss you until we meet again. πŸ’”"

**From the #BartholomewCountySheriffsOffice **

For Release: April 11, 2022

TWO ARRESTED DURING TRAFFIC STOP
On April 8, 2022, approximately 12:52 a.m., Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Deputy Dylan Prather was traveling north on US 31/W 500 N, when he observed a black SUV (traveling in front of him) swerving across both lanes of travel and onto the shoulder.

Deputy Prather conducted a traffic stop and both the driver and the passenger provided false names.  The driver was later identified as William E. Hayes, 27, Indianapolis, and the passenger was identified as Daron S. Croom, 31, Indianapolis.  Both Hayes and Croom had outstanding arrest warrants for dealing methamphetamine and cocaine.

BCSO K9 Frizko was deployed and, during the course of the investigation, deputies located fentanyl and more than $17,000 cash.

Both Hayes and Croom were remanded to the Bartholomew County Jail on preliminary charges that include:
William E. Hayes:
False informing
Possession of a controlled substance
Operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated
Daron S. Croom:
False informing
Possession of a controlled substance
Arrest warrant

All persons are considered innocent unless/until proven guilty in a court of law.

Primary Deputy:  Deputy Prather
Assisting:  Sergeant Andrew Dougan, Deputy Dustin Newland and Columbus Police Sergeant Ben Quesenberry
Agencies on scene:  BCSO, CPD

“Folks, people from larger cities are bringing this into our county and into our homes”, said Bartholomew County Sheriff Matthew A. Myers.
“Just last week, I issued a warning about the dangers of fentanyl that is coming into our community.

“Please take this information seriously and protect yourself and your loved ones”, said Sheriff Myers.

“Law enforcement is doing everything we can to slow the supply but we need everyone’s help and (unfortunately) I believe we may see an even bigger spike in our community and we must be prepared”, said Sheriff Myers.
