Meet URL, the cleverly-named Electronic Detection dog of the Weber County Sherrif's Office! The force out in Ogden, Utah just welcomed this specially-trained K-9—the first of his kind in the state—who can sniff out electronic devices.

URL is a 16-month old black Lab who is one of just nine K-9s in the US who can "sniff out electronic storage devices such as thumb drives, cellphones, SIM cards, SD cards, external hard drives, tablets and iPads." As the sheriff's office announced on Facebook, “Whether it's child porn, terrorism intelligence, narcotics or financial crimes information, URL has the ability to find evidence hidden on basically any electronic memory device.”
