K9 and officer conduct routine searches at local schools

MARSHALL COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – K9 Officer Raven and his handler, Officer Graves of the Owens Cross Roads Police Department assisted Marshall County authorities with searches of local schools.

While the couple trained, they joined Albertville police, Guntersville police and Marshall County sheriff’s deputies in several searches of high school and college campuses on Wednesday.

K9 Raven and other K9s alerted to a few things but nothing that warranted arrests, according to the Owens Cross Roads Police Department.

The department said the K9s have to overcome wind and other conditions, which makes their job more difficult.

“After training was over, we have no doubt that Graves needed to keep his Mount Dew on as Raven was likely craving refreshments as well,” the department’s Facebook post wrote. “Sometimes the water bottle just doesn’t fit,” she says. Truth be told, we think she was a bit in love after meeting Marshall County’s new K-9. That’s all she was talking about,” the post continued.

The department said after some rest, the couple were back on the streets in the evening.
