So they put out a call to the Massillon Police Department for some specialized assistance.

Enter Inca, the department’s K-9 officer, along with human Officer Riccio. Inca was able to immediately “alert” on the stopped car. A search turned up meth pipes, crack pipes, suspected meth, unknown pills, and marijuana.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol arrested the occupants of the car.

To quote the Massillon Police Department:”‘Job Well Done’.  Interagency cooperation is always a good thing!”
