Parents Hire K9 Services To Search Son's Room For Drugs

A Louisville, Kentucky couple were worried about their son smoking marijuana. As a result, they called Michael Davis who operates The Last Chance K9 Service outside of Louisville to search their son's room. After searching the boy's bedroom with a drug-sniffing dog, he reportedly found four grams of heroin in a pair of tube socks.

Davis said his company's main purpose is to provide schools and other large organizations with dogs that have been trained to sniff out dangerous materials such as drugs and bombs. Yet, an increasing number of parents are hiring group's like Davis's to find out if their teenagers are using drugs.

Davis says the search of the Louisville teen's room is just one of more than 50 searches of private residences that he's been called to do since his company opened for business in September 2015. Davis adds that the searches are confidential, and are not used to punish but to allow concerned parents to help their children before they end up in jail.

Davis went on to state that 90 percent of the private searches he's been asked to do turned up narcotics, including cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin.

In 2013, the CDC reported that over 8,200 people died from heroin use--this is double the number of deaths in 2011.
