Saline County K-9 Helps Arrest 5 Suspects

State News

SALINE COUNTY, Ark. – Saline County’s newest K-9 is being credited with 5 felony arrests in only two hours. 

Rineco helped his handler stop a wanted felon. 

The arrest led the officers to a home where four more felons were arrested. 

One of the suspects tried to run, but was caught by the K-9.

Rineco was gifted to the Saline County Sheriff’s Office eight weeks ago when he graduated from the academy. 

“This is a force multiplier for us. having a K-9 assigned to us can open up doors we didn’t have before ..he’s worth his wait in gold,” says Lt. Jeffrey Silk.

Rineco also made several drug related arrests. 

We’re told some K-9’s go their whole career and never achieve what this dog has done in a few short weeks.
