K-9 Gizmo dies unexpectedly

Grays Harbor Undersheriff says that K-9 Gizmo has died unexpectedly. Scott says that Gizmo had a severe medical event and underwent emergency surgery on Wednesday, but was unable to be saved.

10 year old Gizmo had been with the department for 8 years and worked with Deputy Rob Crawford as an apprehension K-9. In his time of service he had over 70 apprehensions, over 200 deployments, and over 100 agency assists.

Some of his most notable assists include 2 bank robbery suspects and possibly most notably the tracking that led to the identification of Martin Arthur Jones. Jones was sentenced to 50 years in prison for the attempted murder of then Washington State Trooper, now , Scott Johnson.

Scott says Gizmo will be missed by everyone, and the office is not certain how they will fill the void left by his death.
