Sunday might have been National Dog Day, but the Callaway County Sheriff Office's K9 Officer Iro didn't get the day off.
Instead, the certified canine aided officers in making a drug arrest. He and his handler assisted in a Missouri Highway Patrol investigation that led to a seizure of what the sheriff's office described as a "stash of drugs": 3.5 pounds of marijuana, 38 grams of THC oil, 29 grams of THC wax and drug paraphernalia.
Troopers pulled over the suspect, Darin M. Hendrickson, of Bradenton, Florida, on I-70 east of Kingdom City. After Iro alerted on the vehicle and troopers discovered the drugs, the 33-year-old was arrested, according to an MSHP arrest report.
Hendrickson faces charges of delivery of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. He was taken to the Callaway County Jail.
