Iberville Sheriff’s Office mourning loss of K-9 Basco
IBERVILLE PARISH, La. (WAFB) - The Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office is mourning the loss of one of their own.
K-9 Basco was laid to rest on Monday, March 6, due to health reasons.
Basco is a German Shepherd and has been with the department since 2012.
“Today we laid down my partner and my best friend. K-9 Basco was more than just a dog that I would load up in my unit every day and take to work, he was one of my best friends and a part of my family. I’m going to miss our deep conversations and our play time,” said his K-9 handler.
Throughout Basco’s career, he has allowed his handler to seize millions of dollars in U.S. currency and illegal drugs off the streets of Iberville Parish.
“It’s always a tough time when we lose one of our law enforcement K-9s. And we thank him for a job well done,” said Iberville Parish Sheriff Brett Stassi.
