Donation lands constable's office new K-9 officer


The constable's office said their previous narcotics dog 'Porter' -- a Labrador retriever -- fell ill and recently died, apparently from some type of infection.

When Humble resident Dean Borden heard of Porter's death, he said he wanted to do something.

"When I heard one of the dogs died, I wanted to help the Constable out and get another dog," Borden said in a press release issued by the constable's office.

Borden reportedly offered up a sizable donation for the department to get a new narcotics dog.

"We've received a lot of positive feedback about our narcotics enforcement, but Mr. Borden took it to whole new level and we are extremely grateful," Constable Kenneth "Rowdy" Hayden said.

The donation made possible a new narcotics dog joining the department. 'Dino,' an 18-month-old Belgian Malinois, is trained in narcotics detection has been put into service

And according to the constable's office, Dino has already made his first drug bust, which resulted in three arrests.
