A new officer has joined the Vigo County Sheriff’s Department.
Rudy is a K-9 with the ability to detect the scent of cell phones.
His skills will be put to use in the Vigo county Jail tracking down phones that are smuggled in.
Jack Shannon not only trained Rudy but he donated him as well.
Troy Ramsey will be his handler.
Sheriff Gregg Ewing says that Rudy has a talent that no other k-9 officer has anywhere in the area and because of that he will be making the rounds to other county jails and prisons in the area.
