This Day in Daily History

MI police dog used in narcotics investigation

April 18, 1969 — Police dogs were used for the first time to search for drugs in Michigan. The previous February, a woman returned to Detroit Metro Airport from a trip to California and went to claim her suitcase. Detective Sgt. Frank Van Wolfen of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department and a German Shepard named Bomber searched arriving luggage after receiving a call from federal authorities in California alerting the police about the woman.

Bomber was the first dog to be used in a narcotics investigation in Michigan. The woman challenged her arrest saying that the Fourth Amendment protected her against unreasonable search and seizure, and that an animal cannot establish probable cause. The County Sheriff maintained that Bomber is simply another investigatory tool the police have at their disposal.
