ACWORTH, Ga. — Acworth police are mourning one of their own: a narcotics detection dog who died of heatstroke in a patrol car late Monday.
Capt. Wayne Dennard, a spokesman for the Acworth police department, said the dog's handler was "just torn up" about the death.
Marco, a 6-year-old Belgian malinois, was trained to track and detect narcotics. His nose could sniff out anything that had been near drugs.
