(Lowell, IN) - The Indiana State Police are mourning the loss of one of their loyal K9 companions.
Zeus, an 8-year-old German Shephard/Belgium Malinois mix, had patrolled the Indiana Toll Road for the past year. Originally from Hungary, Zeus was stationed for five years in Ft. Wayne before retiring when his handler was promoted. He recently came out of retirement to help Trooper Logan Hensley handle the Toll Road.
Among Zeus’ accomplishments over his career, the K9 helped recover over $540,000 in fake credit cards, 56 illegal firearms, over 370 pounds of drugs, and 12 criminal suspects.
Unfortunately, Zeus contracted a sudden illness and had to be euthanized late last week.
