Police Blotter

Acting on a drug informant's tip in 2003, detectives in Waterloo, Iowa, had a police dog “search” a car. The dog started to sniff, and then abandoned his post, but police took the car to the station anyway, where another dog sniffed it and signaled drugs. A search warrant was obtained, and owner Kirk Sallis was arrested for cocaine possession. However, in June 2004, a judge dismissed the charge, ruling that the impound was illegal, in that the first dog never “completed” the initial search, since the dog, part-way through the search, had run off to chase a cat. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
