    Andy, the K-9 officer of the LaRue County Sheriff’s Department, is now a nationally certified drug dog.

    Andy and his handler, Deputy Russell McCoy, attended a day-long session in Murfreesboro last week. The 3-year-old Belgian Malinois did a “great” job at locating the different kinds of drugs hidden at the training center, McCoy said.

    Although Andy has worked numerous drug cases in LaRue and surrounding counties, his designation as a “National Narcotics Detective Dog” gives his nose for drugs more credence in matters of search and seizure.

    District Judge C. Derek Reed issued the $1,000 cash bench warrants to compel the 18- and 19-year-olds to abide by an agreement he made with each of them at an earlier court date: Show proof of graduation in court on June 3 and misdemeanor charges of intentional breach of compulsory attendance law would be dropped.
