LEWISTON - The Nez Perce County Sheriff's Office would like to recognize Deputy JR Gregory and his K-9 Ikar for all of their hard work over the last few months. K-9 Ikar completed all of the requirements to be a certified drug detection dog. The next step is to complete the requirements to have K-9 Ikar certified as a patrol dog. K-9 Ikar would then be certified to help apprehend violent criminals.

K-9 Ikar's first drug find since becoming certified occurred yesterday on January 9 at the Nez Perce County Jail where he located concealed drugs in inmate housing. The inmate has been charged accordingly.
