A veteran KPD officer had no idea a suspect he sought at an East Knoxville motel had the day before exchanged gunfire with an officer in Florida.
K9 officer Tom Turner and his partner Kyra (member # 2510) from North Carolina, located a large marijuana find in the trunk of a vehicle weighing 99.6 pounds on Jan 15. Tom stated that after Kyra alerted to the presence of the drugs, they secured a search warrant for the car and found these contents.
We congratulate Tom and Kyra on taking this large amount of marijuana off the streets and from the drug courier. Stay safe, keep "detecting and protecting" our streets.
