• Deputy Joey House and “Ducco,” a Dutch shepherd.
• MDS Chris Snyder and “Katie,” the bloodhound.
Their specialties include tracking, detecting drugs and explosives and apprehending suspects.
The night of Nov. 5, Katie and Deputy Snyder tracked the Walmart shooting suspects after their vehicle wrecked and they fled into the woods near Midland. Bane and MDS Arrington caught two of the suspects.
Early the morning of Nov. 8, Hank and Det. Colbert caught a suspect who escaped a Remington home during a drug raid, near Mr. Butler’s home.
When the supervisors and audience stood to applaud the unit Thursday night, bloodhound Katie had a few things to say. You can watch the video here, clicking on “Recognition of the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit.”
