Noro Nabs Two Utah Drug Runners
Posting Date: 06/14/2012

Jeff Smith, Mesquite Police Dept

Mesquite Police K9 “Noro” locates drugs during a late night traffic stop. Two Utah men arrested for felony drug traffickin.

Just before midnight on Monday June 11, a Mesquite Police Department Officer conducted a traffic stop on a pick-up truck from Utah. During the stop, the experienced officer observed suspicious behavior and indicators of criminal activity, exhibited by the two male adult occupants.

The Officer deployed the newest member of the Mesquite Police Department, “Noro,” who is a two year old Belgian Malinois canine. Noro immediately alerted to the presence of drug odor, thus confirming the Officer’s suspicions.

A search of the truck resulted in Officers locating 8.4 grams of methamphetamine. The two

adult male occupants, identified as Shirl Johnson, 43, pictured on left below, and David Carter, 43, pictured on right below, of La Verkin, Utah were both arrested for possession of methamphetamine and drug trafficking.

Chief Tanner commended the Mesquite Police Officers and K9s for their 24/7 consistent hard work and dedication by stating, “This is another shining example of our Officer’s constant commitment to keep our city safe, free from the criminal element that aim to destroy lives, families, and communities.”

See additional MCJ story about a sizable donation from the non-profit organization Friends for Canines, who provided over $12,000 for Noro's care and training. Council Meeting Wrap-up
