Police are asking for the public’s help after a narcotics search dog disappeared. Lobi, a Belgian Malinois, is a former police K-9 and was supposed to return to work with detectives as a narcotics search dog.
Wading into a growing national controversy over the use of drug sniffing dogs, the Florida Supreme Court on Thursday ruled the state must come up with more than just a certificate of drug training to make a pooch’s search pass the smell test.
K9 officers in the state of Florida can no longer do a “sniff test” by a drug-detection dog at the front door of a home without a warrant.
A former Miami police officer accused of starving his K9 to death will not see the inside of a prison.
