Sheriff John Idleburg said, “I am very proud of Canine Duke and his handler, Deputy Arrowood, for their efforts on this traffic stop. Our canine teams, and the entire Sheriff’s Office, will continue working tirelessly to seize dangerous drugs and weapons, while arresting those who possess them, to keep our communities safe.”
