It is with a heavy heart that Sheriff Mason announces the line of duty death of K-9 Ike. K-9 Ike was tragically killed while on a traffic stop in Berlin this evening. K-9 Ike was a tremendous asset to the Sheriff’s Office and was responsible for numerous apprehensions and drug seizures. Our thoughts and prayers are with his handler and family. K-9 Ike was escorted with full honors to Holloway Funeral Home in Salisbury.
The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank Holloway Funeral Home, Maryland State Police Berlin and Salisbury, Berlin Police Department, Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office, and the Salisbury Police Department.
