Zeus assisted the Minnesota State Highway Patrol during a recent canine sniff of a vehicle for narcotics.

No narcotics were found, but suspected stolen property was located during the Jan. 5 traffic stop in Monticello.

Zeus also assisted with a stop in Big Lake earlier that same day. No narcotics were found, but the occupants of that vehicle admitted to using marijuana.
