Back in April we told you about Sawyer, the new K-9 drug dog who went to work with the Benton County Sheriff's office.

Sawyer, who's a break from the traditional "German Shepard" type of K-9, has been trained to sniff out narcotics besides helping chase down perps.

Monday, Sawyer helped sheriff's nail suspects who allegedly threw a bunch of meth from a moving car prior to a traffic stop near Johnson and Gap Roads by Prosser. Officers were executing a traffic stop when one of the suspects threw baggies out the window.

Sawyer promptly located and confirmed the presence of drugs inside the car even though the suspect threw them out.

He's a Shar-Pei  Lab mix, who finished at the top of his class at the grueling academy back in April.
