K9 “Chill” is a two year old German Shepherd working dog. He was born in the Czech Republic where he began his Law Enforcement training. He was trained for almost a year then moved to North Carolina with Triangle K-9 LLC. We were able to purchase Chill with drug seizure money from crimes committed in this county. Deputy Seahorn was selected to be the K-9 Handler for the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and went through extensive training in North Carolina with Chill for several weeks. Chill is trained and certified in Narcotics Detection, Criminal Apprehension and Search and Rescue Tracking.
Since joining the Sheriff’s Office, Chill has found and apprehended numerous suspects that fled from the Sheriff’s Deputies and other surrounding agencies. He has assisted in the arrest of criminals in Franklin and neighboring counties. Some of his busts include a pound of illegal drugs that were brought into the county being prepared for sale on our streets until being intercepted by Chill and the offender was arrested. His finds also include multiple street level drug seizures.
