Illegal fireworks cause police K-9 to escape from kennel

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Police Department was asking for the the public's help locating a missing Police K-9 Saturday night.  Police narcotics Dog "J.J." escaped from the kennels at the Spokane Regional Training Center, near the 3800 block of East Trent sometime overnight.

J.J.'s handler left J.J., a 4-year-old Labrador Retriever, secured at the Training Center at 3:30 p.m. Saturday while he worked with the Police tactical team for the 4th of July festivities in Riverfront Park. When he returned at 11:00 p.m., he discovered J.J. missing. 

J.J. was enclosed in a cinder block and chain link kennel. J.J. managed to pull on the kennel door with enough force to bend the metal clasp a couple of inches, which then allowed the door to open. J.J. then managed to jump over a six foot fence enclosing the kennels and escape from the Training Center grounds.

J.J. reacts adversely to loud noises.  Police say illegal fireworks were being ignited near the vicinity, causing J.J. to panic and escape. 

J.J. was located Sunday morning by Spokane Police Corporal Tom Lee at Trent Ave. and Waterworks St. at 9:25 Sunday morning.  J.J sustained wounds to his paws while escaping but other than that is unharmed.  J.J. has been returned to his handler.
