PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A Golden Retriever in Yamhill County, Oregon retrieved quite a haul after digging in his family’s backyard earlier this month.
The Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office says 18-month-old Kenyon was digging in his family’s backyard when he came upon $85,000 worth of black tar heroin.
His owners originally thought their dog had come across a time capsule from previous tenants but upon opening realized it was a controlled substance.
Deputies came to the house and said it was 15 ounces of black tar heroin.
Kenyon was awarded a ribbon and named an honorary narcotics K9 for life.
