EPD’s drug sniffing dog dies

On Saturday the Ennis Police Department announced the death of “Snitch,” the narcotics detecting dog who had aided in local crime fighting for over two years. “It is with heavy hearts that we let everyone know Ennis PD K-9 Snitch died today after succumbing to injuries he sustained from being hit by a car,” the department stated on its Facebook page Saturday. “Ennis PD is currently investigating the cause of incident, but early signs point to it being a tragic accident. Snitch has been with the Ennis Police Department since April of 2016 and at the time was one of three German Jagdterriers working in law enforcement in the U.S.A.” Chief of Police John Erisman told the Ennis News in April 2016: “Narcotics detecting canines are an amazing tool for our department. Their ability to find illegal narcotics is greater than that of human officers, and any help we can get in getting illegal drugs off the streets helps us keep our city safe. Snitch, in just his short time here, has already proven a great asset for the department.” “On his first day on the job, Snitch was responsible for two drug related arrests,” Erisman continued. “On one stop he located the illegal drugs. On another, the driver of a vehicle admitted having drugs after merely seeing Snitch get out of the squad car.” Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News.
