On Thursday June 24th, 2021 at approximately 1634 hours, Deputy W. Crase initiated a traffic stop in the area of N. 3rd Street & Turpin Drive; in reference to traffic violations on a vehicle that was occupied by three male subjects.

Deputy W. Crase requested the use of a canine in reference to a drug sniff. While on scene, Deputy Hamilton arrived to assist with the traffic stop.

Throughout the course of the traffic stop one of the three male subjects fled on foot and was pursued on foot by Deputy Hamilton.

Visual of the male subject was lost on the railroad tracks; near the 5th Street dead end.

When visual was lost of the male subject, Deputy Kermeen deployed K9 Bo for an area search. K9 Bo located and apprehended the male subject in the undergrowth alongside the railroad tracks.

The male subject was taken into custody without further incident and identified as Mr. Joseph Chesnut of Berea; who had two outstanding felony parole violation arrest warrants.

K9 Bo was then deployed on the vehicle in reference to a drug sniff and gave a conditioned response to the odor of narcotics.

A search of the vehicle yielded a black bag containing approximately 13 grams of suspected heroin.

Mr. Chesnut was arrested and lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.

Thank you, to the numerous Richmond Police Department Officers who assisted in the search of this subject.

IN MEMORY OF A DEDICATED K9 PARTNER:

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office, with heavy hearts, would like to inform our community of the passing of K9 Goku.

K9 Goku faithfully served Madison County alongside his partner, Deputy J. Bol, from 2014 until his medical retirement in 2019.

K9 Goku passed away on Thursday April 1st, 2021 after becoming ill on Monday March 29th, 2021. K9 Goku was an imported nine year old male Belgian Malinois certified in narcotics detection.

K9 Goku had served the Madison County Sheriff’s Office since 2014 after being trained at the Little Rock K9 Academy in Pine Bluff, Arkansas and held narcotics certifications from the National Narcotic Detector Dog Association (NNDDA). K9 Goku was trained, tested and certified in the detection of illegal narcotics including; heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana.

Deputy Bol and K9 Goku, with their combined talents and experience, were responsible for the seizure of illegal narcotics and monies used for drug trafficking from the streets of Madison County. Together, Deputy Bol and K9 Goku were responsible for numerous drug arrests during their time partnered together as handler and K9.

During K9 Goku’s career, with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, he quickly proved himself as a proficient narcotics detection K9.

K9 Goku is credited with making a significant and positive impact on the citizens of our community by removing dangerous and illegal narcotics from the streets of Madison County.

Deputy Bol and the Madison County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank Dr. Michael Putnam, D.V.M and the caring staff at Richmond Veterinary Clinic for their numerous years of providing expert and compassionate care to K9 Goku.

During this time, we humbly ask our community to keep Deputy Bol and his family in their prayers as they grieve the loss of K9 Goku.

Thank you Officer Kermeen and Bo for delivering my shirt. Bo sure is beautiful. Stay safe!
Recieved my shirts today....can not wait to wear and represent the K9 Unit..🙂🙂👏👏
Idea: a calendar with our K9s and their handlers for fundraising! I’d buy a couple. 😊
Is there somewhere on the page that tells us the names of our K9s and their handlers? Or at least just the K9s? 💕🐾
