Burien Police / King County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that K-9 Fury helped officers find cocaine in a vehicle after a recent traffic stop:
On 09/11/20 our Precinct 4 Street Crimes Unit (White Center-Burien), with assistance from SeaTac Special Emphasis Team, conducted a traffic stop while investigating narcotics activity in the city of Burien.
Police say that during the traffic stop, K-9 Fury alerted on the vehicle indicating the presence of narcotics and/or narcotics residue. Precinct-4 Street Crimes Unit impounded the vehicle and applied for and was granted a search warrant to search the vehicle. Once the warrant was signed, K-9 Fury entered the interior of the vehicle and alerted on the center console. Detectives located 6 ounces of cocaine and a loaded handgun inside the console.
The cocaine has a wholesale value of $5,000-$7,000 and a street value of over $14,000 if sold by the gram.
Charges are now pending against two subjects for Investigation VUCSA (Violation of Uniformed Controlled Substance Act) and Possession of Cocaine with Intent to Deliver. The cocaine, handgun and vehicle were taken in to evidence.
“This is a great example of coordinated teamwork between detectives and, of course, K-9 Fury.”
