"Deputy Harris has been with the Sheriff’s Office for 17 years and has been teamed with Luger for over 7 years. During that time this has been a terrific team as they have apprehended 86 suspects, seized over $50,000 in cash, located several missing persons and assisted many local and federal law enforcement agencies."

Ingham County Sheriff's Office

The Ingham County Sheriff's Office reports that one of their drug/tracking dogs, "Luger" who worked with Deputy Gregory Harris of the Ingham County Sheriff's Office died after Sunday's storms. Luger was killed after his dog kennel was damaged during Sunday's storms. The damage to his kennel allowed Luger to escape from the deputy's home. He was hit by a vehicle several blocks away from Deputy Harris' home.

A local vet found Luger, and took him to his veterinary hospital until his owner could be located.

Luger worked with Deputy Harris for over seven years. During that time he assisted in catching 86 suspects, seized $50,000 in cash, and located several missing persons. He was 8 years old, and was known to many local school children from presentations that he attended at area schools. Luger has been buried at the Sheriff's Office and a marker for his grave will be placed there in the near future.
