Investigative Consultants is proud to announce that we now have a Tobacco Detection K9 named Max on full-time duty. Max has just been placed into action and is available to assist law enforcement upon request with any tobacco related investigations. Max’s handler is a former Sergeant from The Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
The illicit tobacco trade is growing every day and with increased enforcement by law enforcement, the traffickers of illicit tobacco are taking great steps to conceal their illegal products.
In the past several months, we have seen hidden compartments and other methods being used by the traffickers to conceal their inventories. The compartments are becoming more and more sophisticated and some have been downright ingenious.
During an initial search of a location in Glendale, California recently, it appeared that there was no illicit tobacco inside, however once a detection dog was unleashed, a hidden compartment was located by the K9. The compartment contained a large amount of illicit cigarettes and $10,000.00 in cash.
Max is an awesome asset in the fight to stop the illicit tobacco trade. If you would like Max to assist you, please contact email@example.com
