EDMONDS — A new Edmonds police dog made its first capture the first week on the job.
Hobbs, a German shepherd, was certified as a police dog Dec. 30, said department spokesman Sgt. Mark Marsh. Hobbs’ handler is officer Jason Robinson.
On Jan. 6, Robinson and Hobbs were called to help Lynnwood police look for a woman wanted on a felony warrant.
“Within a few minutes Hobbs located the suspect hiding in some brush on a hillside a few blocks from where she was last seen,” Marsh said Monday. “She was arrested without further incident.”
Robinson and Hobbs started training in October. Hobbs was purchased through a fundraiser by the Edmonds Police Foundation.
