MOUNT GILEAD — The Morrow County Sheriff’s Office K-9 program recently received a $1,000 donation from the Bonecutter Family as part of the Bonecutters monthly Charitable Giving Campaign.
Rockwell and Krista Bonecutter presented the check this past Friday. On hand to accept the donation were Morrow County Sheriff John Hinton, K-9 Handler Deputy James Coulter and K-9 Officer Stormy.
Rockwell said that in addition to being dog lovers, they have a deep appreciation for the work that these K-9’s do. “These dogs save countless lives by finding these drugs, some of which are very deadly, and keeping those drugs from making it into our community. For me it’s less about busting people and more about saving lives.”
Krista added, “Our community owes a huge debt to these animals for both the danger they encounter and the lives they protect. With this donation we hope to ensure Stormy gets the regular veterinary care she needs to keep fighting crime for many years to come.”
Sheriff Hinton expressed his appreciation.
“We thank the Bonecutter family for their donation and appreciate their generosity. The funds will be used for veterinarian bills and care of our K-9 Stormy. We would also like to add an additional K-9 at some point.”
K-9 Officer Stormy is in her second year with the Sheriff’s Office having been trained in narcotic detection and tracking. She has assisted with a number of investigations over the past two years. Most recently, she was on hand at the drug investigation in Chesterville however her services were not needed once the warrants were executed. “If officers had not been able to find anything, she would have been called in to locate any narcotics,” explained Coulter.
The Bonecutter’s are awarding a $1000 donation every month, through the Bonecutter Family Trust, to a group or organization in Morrow County. The Bonecutters are best known for the Bonecutter Plaza located at the I71/95 interchange.
