PGPD K-9 Team Recovers Guns and Drugs

A Prince George’s County police officer and his K-9 partner are credited with getting two guns off county streets.  On January 19, 2013, police officers made a traffic stop on Kennebec Street in Oxon Hill.  The police officers smelled marijuana coming from the stopped car.  They called for a K-9 team to assist and were given permission to search the vehicle.   Cpl. Jeffery Walden and his K-9 partner Max arrived on scene.  Max alerted his handler to the glove box area.  Inside that glove box, police officers found two guns and 10 baggies with trace amounts of suspected marijuana.

This good police work comes on the heels of the PGPD’s Canine Unit welcoming its newest members.  On January 18, 2013, the unit held a ceremony to honor three graduates from its basic patrol K-9 class. Several of these teams have already recovered weapons and stolen property.  A fourth graduating team is with the Hyattsville City Police Department.
