There's a new top dog with the Blacksburg Police Department after its newest narcotics K9, Mika became certified.
The 1-year-old German Sheppard is now officially on the job after passing certification at the State Police Training Academy Thursday. We introduced you to the dog, a passive alert dog, last week as she wrapped up 7 weeks of training. BLACKSBURG WOMAN DONATES MONEY FOR POLICE K9
A Blacksburg woman donated the money for the department to get Mika to help fight drugs.
Mika is trained to sniff out drugs like methamphetamine, marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy. She will stop and sit to indicate when she has found something.
