MULBERRY, Fla. — The handler of police canine Sam Diesel had kept the German shepherd in a portable kennel at the Mulberry Police Department in the weeks before the dog died inside a patrol car with faulty air conditioning, according to an investigative report released Tuesday by the agency.

Officer Sara Movahedi was told by a supervisor that police dogs should be placed indoors if the handler is away from their cars for longer than 30 minutes. The effort was meant to conserve gasoline, Movahedi said in the report.
