A Petaluma police dog helped apprehend a drug offender on Saturday, according to the police department. Officers were dispatched to a report of a possible vehicle burglary at a home in the 500 block of Murray Drive at around 9:10 p.m., according to Petaluma police. Officers spotted a suspect — later identified as Christopher Ray Knapp, 28, of Rohnert Park — walk from the front of one home to the driveway of another, police said.
While Knapp was detained for questioning, police K-9 “Jimmy” searched the area. Jimmy quickly located syringes and more than a gram of heroin stashed on a tire of a pickup truck in the driveway, police said. Knapp was arrested for heroin possession and violating probation.
