On 18 March 2018 INBTI and Pittslyvania County Sheriffs Department K9 Handler Adam Reynolds and K-9 Ruger were deployed to search for a suicidal male subject who had went into a wooded area. No information was provided on where the intoxicated male had entered the woods or on the direction of travel. After obtaining a scent article, K9 Ruger was casted and quickly led Handler Reynolds Into the wooded area. After a short trail several beer bottles were located and along with disturbances in the woods. Ruger went through the wooded area quickly and Handler Reynolds began to hear something moving in front of them and eventually pushed the subject out of the woods and to awaiting patrol officers.
Thank you Adam and K9 Ruger both for the long hours and endless training you conduct to prepare for these searches and thank you Adam for your commitment to serving your community! You nare training hard and are quite the team!
