Local K-9 On The Hunt In P.A.
We've all heard the story of the alleged cop killer in Pennsylvania. Eric Frein is suspected of killing one Pennsylvania State Trooper and critically injuring another.Then the guy goes all 'Rambo' and retreats to the woods where he's apparently been now for over a month. If he's eluded capture for this long, the guy likely has some serious skills that can also make him very dangerous.
Local K-9 Officer Keith Mackenzie and K-9 Daisy Mae have been called to the Keystone State to lend a hand... and paw. Why this dynamic duo of law enforcement? Because they're good at it... Really, really good at it.
You may recall that back in June authorities in Northern Maine were chasing murder suspect Jessie Marquis along the Canadian border. They'd been at it for six days. They contacted Mackenzie for some help. 80 members of law enforcement had been at it for nearly a week... Keith and Daisy Mae found the guy in 90 minutes... 90 minutes! Even the spokesman for Maine State Police had to admit that they were pretty impressed.
The guy in Maine was scared, on the run, yet still dangerous. The guy in Pennsylvania is hiding, hunting and very dangerous. Our best wishes are with Keith and his faithful police partner. They both work for the Strafford County Sheriff as well as the Rochester Police Department. They train at the New Hampshire Police K-9 Academy at Pease Air National Guard Base.
The academy is a non-profit funded by the Working Dog Foundation. I currently serve as the Vice-Chair of this worthwhile charity. We have a big fundraiser Friday night in Portsmouth at The Music Hall. It's a great night of comedy starring Lenny Clarke who is currently shooting the next season of Sirens for the USA network. Friday night's comedy show also features Tony V. Officer Mackenzie told me this morning that he and Daisy Mae plan on being there along with several other officers and their K-9 partners.
Tickets are still available here and we'd love to see you there this Friday night.
