Mountain View police bust a nationwide drug ring and they did it with the help of a three year old lab named Zues
When it comes to sniffing-out illegal drugs, no nose may be better than the nose of a dog named Zeus.
Zeus has only been a member of Mountain View's police force for 18 months, but in that time he's compiled quite the resume helping get mounds of drugs off the streets.
"He has his own badge and probably the most popular person inside the station," said Police Chief Scott Vermeer.
While that may be tough for the police chief to admit, Zeus's ability really took the spotlight recently when the three year-old lab found 120 pounds of marijuana and seventy grand in cash inside a grow house.
What the investigation found was people using the pretense of growing marijuana under Proposition 215 for medicinal uses but the investigation found that they were doing it entirely for profit," Vermeer said.
Mountain View police made several arrests there in what they call a network of drug dealers coast-to-coast and say more arrests are likely still to come - and all with the help of Zeus.
This case, though significant, is really just the tip of the iceberg in the sense that we know here in Santa Clara county people are growing and selling marijuana for profit and not as the law intended," Vermeer said.
And Zeus does all of his police work for the simple rewards of little love from his partner and his favorite yellow ball.
Police Dog ping!
Land of Mixed Signals.
That dog finds some quality weed there! If the city ever has some budget shortfalls, they could always rent him out for a fee.
As easy as it is to get weed in California from the “medical marijuana” shops I don’t know how these street dealers keep in business. It must been ending up with teens as the final customers.
The weed from the shops is extremely expensive. It is much cheaper on the street.
OK I figured must be something like that. They want to get high, not high off some boutique strain
Yes, and they don’t want to be gouged. Who the heck wants to be swindled when they are buying something?
