Law enforcement agencies in Bakersfield needed some help recently to conduct a search warrant. They turned to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation drug-sniffing dog teams.

Two K-9 teams from Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and California State Prison, Corcoran, assisted in the search of a residence in Bakersfield.

The K-9s were called in to help after an investigation led to a search warrant being served.

Inside the residence, the CDCR’s K-9 teams found approximately 1 ounce of heroin, 5.4 grams of marijuana, 1.5 grams methamphetamine and a supply of hypodermic needles.

The search was conducted by Officer Robert Hanson and his four-legged partner Viking as well as Officer Jason Sanchez and partner Sadie.
