FDL Police K9 End Of Service

From Fond du Lac Police Chief Bill Lamb:

Friday the Lake Winnebago Area MEG Unit lost one of its trusted members to an ongoing illness. Canine Storm was put to sleep this morning after suffering a severe seizure.

 

Storm was with the Lake Winnebago Area MEG Unit since December, 2006, and the funds used to purchase, train and equip him were provided by a private donor from Oshkosh. Storm was assigned to Detective Scott Krause from the City of Fond du Lac Police Department. Storm was a sole purpose drug detection canine acquired from and certified through Steinig Tal Kennels of Campbellsport, Wisconsin.

It is difficult to quantify the contribution Storm made to this unit – tens of thousands of dollars, hundreds of pounds of marijuana, multiple kilograms of cocaine, countless rocks of crack cocaine, and significant quantities of heroin and meth, all have been located and seized as a result of Storm’s efforts.

 

Storm was an excellent drug detection canine and a great partner. He will be missed by the members of the Lake Winnebago Area MEG Unit and City of Fond du Lac Police Department.
