Canine Unit Takes a Bite Out of Crime

‘It’s a bad idea to burglarize a place marked “K-9 training facility.”

Police dog handlers arriving Wednesday at the abandoned nursing home where they hold training sessions discovered two men and a woman dismantling the building’s copper pipes and wiring, Hall County Sheriff’s Sgt. Kiley Sargent said.

When the officers arrived, the three dropped their tools and ran. That was their second mistake.

“For anyone to try to run from a whole unit of canines, it’s just a no-win situation,” Sargent said. [..]

Signs outside the northern Georgia facility warn, “Caution!!! Gainesville Police Department K-9 training facility – Keep Out.”‘
