(Patrolman Kevin) Yeagle stepped out of his vehicle and observed a white male suspect, identified as Shaw, exit the tobacco store with a small dachshund on a leash.
Yeagle identified himself, and Shaw began walking in his direction when Yeagle observed the butt of a revolver protruding from the front pocket of Shaw’s pants, according to the report. Yeagle then “immediately grabbed [Shaw’s] right wrist, raised his right arm and pinned it against his chest” while confiscating the revolver, the report says.
That’s when, according to the report, Shaw’s dachshund bit Yeagle on his inner right leg and Shaw — identifying himself as an undercover agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration — asked Yeagle what he was doing and said he didn’t know what was going on.
The report says that Sgt. Don Cleek showed up and took the revolver, and Shaw explained to Yeagle his undercover position with the DEA, saying his dachshund was his trained narcotic dog.
Shaw then reportedly told officers he and his dog were on official business to locate drugs his daughter allegedly had in her car. According to the report, Shaw made his daughter remove her clothes from the car so the dog could “sniff” out any potential drugs. Shaw said the dog had “hit” on the clothes and that he believed drugs were located inside clothes-filled trash bags in the car.
The loyal wiener dog has been turned over to dog was turned over to Arkadelphia Animal Control. He is clearly a victim of a poor upbringing and the Dachshund News hopes he comes to no harm.
