UAE: How K9 unit helped Dubai Police crack 2 tough criminal cases
The well-trained dogs traced a murder victim’s body after 12 months and busted a drug racket at Jebel Ali port.
Dubai Police officials were able to trace the body of a murder victim 12 months after the crime was committed — thanks to the K9 Unit.
Major Salah Khalifa Al Mazrouei, Director, K9, said that trained canines helped uncover the crime that had occurred in 2019.
The K9 unit members worked in tandem with the CID officials to crack the complicated case.
The dogs’ strong olfactory senses came in handy to make the crucial discovery, as they traced the location where the body was buried by the murder suspect.
The breakthrough is just one of the unit's latest achievements.
Major Al Mazrouei also cited the K9 unit’s good work in February 2020, when the dogs helped bust a drug racket at Jebel Ali port in Dubai.
An investigation revealed that a gang of criminals was trying to smuggle banned drugs into the UAE by hiding them inside electricity cables.
Pule, an ace Labrador of the K9 unit, helped the Dubai Police authorities bust the drug racket.
The shipment had contained 35.3 million pills of captagon, a popular recreational drug in the Arabian Peninsula.
The operation was codenamed “Pule 2” in recognition of Pule's valiant effort, Major Al Mazrouei added.
