Marysville K-9 wins new vehicle

A Marysville Police dog will be receiving a new SUV after finishing second in a national contest. K-9 Heiko was one of dozens of dogs from police departments across the country competing for a grant from non profit Vested in K-9s. Heiko and handler Officer Justin Reeves received second place in the online voting competition, however Marysville will still be receiving the free SUV. Announced last night, both first and second place winners will be receiving a $50,000 grant to purchase a new Chevy Tahoe and equipment for the K-9 unit. The additional grant dollars for the second place dog were made possible by an anonymous donor.
