The Death of a Beloved K-9 Cop in Texas Has Been Announced by Police

The Woodway Police Department confirmed the loss of K9 Officer Cody following a battle with cancer on Monday. Cody began his employment with Woodway police in 2019, “and in just three short years, he exceeded all of our expectations,” according to the agency.

Cody conducted more than 300 searches throughout his brief but productive career, resulting in the seizure of more than five pounds of marijuana, 29.5 grams of meth, four grams of liquid THC, 27.6 grams of cocaine, and 4.4 grams of heroin, according to the department.

“Officers were also able to seize more than 100 items of the property thanks to Cody,” police stated. Cody joined the agency in late 2019 to replace K-9 Officer Gerry, who died of natural reasons, according to KWTX. Cody’s handler, Woodway Police Officer Miller, and the K-9’s beloved Kong toy were present when he died early Monday morning.

The agency expressed appreciation to the South Bosque Veterinary Clinic for its time, effort, and ongoing care of Woodway’s K-9 officers “Rest easy, Cody, we’ll take it from here,” the department wrote in a social media tribute.

Authorities claimed two West Texas sheriff’s deputies were killed and a city employee was badly injured after responding to a dog complaint on Monday night. According to Sgt. Justin Baker of the Texas Department of Public Safety, the fatal shooting occurred shortly after the trio arrived at a home in the city of Eden at around 8:40 p.m.

“A confrontation started and soon escalated to shooting,” Baker said, as the two Concho County sheriff’s deputies and the Eden city employee were dealing with persons at the property. Baker announced the arrest of the shooting suspect, Jeffrey Nicholas, 28, on Tuesday. Nicholas is charged with capital murder of a peace officer on two counts. He is being jailed in the Tom Green County Jail on a bond of $4 million.
