Dino

K9 Dino died after suffering a medical emergency during an active track of several suspects involved in a burglary and abduction of a 15-month-old child.

Several men pushed their way into a home in Forest Park and stole a large amount of cash. They abducted the child as they fled. Responding units began to pursue the vehicle on I-75, until it crashed near Forest Park in Springfield Township. One subject was arrested at the scene of the crash but the other three fled on foot. The child was recovered unharmed from the vehicle.

A Springfield Township canine unit tracked the suspects, but due to the heat, was taken out of service. K9 Dino responded to continue the track. Several minutes into the track Dino collapsed in the 6200 block of Collegevue Place in the city of Cincinnati. He was taken to a local veterinary hospital where he died.
