K-9 Handler Essential to Fullerton PD

On a night when the Fullerton Police Department’s traffic unit was conducting a drug search on a tow-yard-kept pickup truck, Officer J. Boline was called out to assist.

“They went through this car like you wouldn’t believe (and) couldn’t find anything; there was just plain nothing in the car at all, other than the gun that they had found under the seat,” said Boline.

That’s when Blitz, the police-commissioned German shepherd assigned to Boline, was sent in.

Blitz began alerting the officers of a drug presence somewhere in the vehicle. Boline noticed the bed of the truck had new paint and discovered it was actually a false floor. The real bed was two or three inches underneath; this vehicle was used to transport drugs, and testing swabs confirmed there was indeed cocaine residue in the hidden compartment.

Only there were no drugs in the truck that night.
