Special to Iredell Free News
The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office has welcomed three new K-9s, Wilbur, Levi and Connie, to the ICSO family.
After weeks of rigorous training in narcotics detection, tracking and article searches at Highland Canine Training, the new K-9s are ready to begin their service to the citizens of Iredell County.
K-9 Wilbur is assigned to Sgt. Ernie Line, K-9 Levi is assigned to Deputy Nathan Hodges, and K-9 Connie is assigned to Sgt. Leo Hayes.
“The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office has a long history of quality canines and canine handlers,” Sheriff Darren Campbell said. “We have been able, over the years, to use our dogs to locate drugs, currency, items of evidence, wanted persons, and missing children and elderly persons. These dogs are a very valuable tool in law enforcement, and we are excited to add Wilbur, Levi and Connie to our ranks, and I anticipate them continuing the canine legacy here at the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office.”
