Marseilles K-9 unit ready to go

A new member of the Marseilles Police Department is ready to sniff out crime.

The department is announcing that Yellow Labrador Retriever Tucker is joining the force.

The K-9 and handler, Officer James Buckingham, have completed training and passed state certification.

Tucker’s main job will be sniffing out drugs, but could also be used to help find missing people.
