A recent incident in front of the North Myrtle Beach city hall has illustrated the effectiveness of trained police dogs. Two Public safety officers of the canine unit were speaking near the entrance of the city hall and one of the canines was with them. The dog became agitated and went to a nearby car, where a large bag of marijuana was found. The two men in the car were arrested, and a man who had gone inside the city hall to pay a traffic ticket was also taken into custody. Officer Dave Capps says police dogs are highly effective when it comes to drug searches.
