Douglas County has a new deputy patrolling the streets and he has quite the nose for sniffing out crime.

K-9 Talon just finished up his training in drug detection, building searches and human apprehension.

According to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, Talon joined the department in April. Talon's handler and partner is Deputy Brian Witt.

So far, Talon and Deputy Witt have been involved with ten drug arrests. The Sheriff's Office said the team also recently assisted another county with a search warrant where several pounds of marijuana and cash were seized.
