La Salle Police Department loses a drug dog

Posted by wlpo on September 10, 2014

Officers from across the Illinois Valley are mourning the death of La Salle K9 Justis.

His handler Brian Zebron says Justis died last night from pancreatic cancer. He says Justis was so strong that he didn’t even show signs of cancer until the very end. In fact he was successful in finding drugs the night before he died.

The 10-year-old Belgian Malinois started working with Zebron in 2008. During his career he’s credited with helping to find $13 million worth of drugs and drug money in the Illinois Valley.
