Recently, the Duluth Police Department proudly announced a new addition to its team. K9 Gus, a 2-year-old Dutch Shepard from Poland, was ready to go, specializing in narcotic detection, tracking, article searching, and apprehension.

K9 Gus began K9 School on February 12th and graduated on May 23rd. His first day on the job was on Monday, May 27.

It didn't take long for Gus to make an impact within the Duluth community, proving that he is a rock star addition to the force.

Anderson then fled the scene on a stolen bicycle and continued to flee on foot in the 1900 block of South St where a short foot pursuit ensued.

Officer Abbott deployed K9 Gus as Anderson continued to flee on foot into a wooded area. Anderson continued to be non-compliant and K9 Gus located him in the 400 block of South 19th Ave E. Anderson was detained and transported to a local hospital for injuries sustained during the apprehension.
