CANNELTON – Cannelton’s board of public works, then the common council, voted at regular meetings Monday to give up the city’s police dog.
Then-Sgt. Lee Hall was to undergo dog-handler training, the News reported in November 2010 after the drug dog, Erik, was introduced at similar meetings. At meetings earlier in the year, then-Chief Eric Dickenson explained training and other costs would be paid through a $9,883 grant from the Perry County Substance Abuse Committee.
