Retired RGP dog finds drugs

A retired Royal Gibraltar Police dog proved that he hasn’t lost any of his old skills after finding £300 of cannabis last night.

Buddy, 12, a Golden Labrador, was out for his evening walkies with his owner when he made the find around 7pm.

The ex-drugs detection dog was walking past a locally registered car in the Europort area when he got a sniff of something suspicious.

Buddy, who retired from the RGP in 2015, then alerted his owner, an off-duty police officer, who quickly called the RGP's control room.

Uniformed officers then arrived and searched the car with its owner present.

A rucksack was found within the vehicle, which contained suspected cannabis resin weighing approximately 64 grams.

A 57-year-old local man was then arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled Class B drug and taken to New Mole House Police Station.
