Police found drugs in the home, according to the paper. An unidentified person was charged on felony drug counts, and several others were taken into custody.
Sheppard said a dozen officers participated in the raid and acted according to policy, which requires an efficient entry.
"In that entry the dog is either going to run or it’s going to be put down," Sheppard said. "As you enter that home, if you allow somebody to get a weapon, that’s even more dangerous than the dog itself."
