Missing Maricopa County Sheriff's Office narcotics dog found

MESA, AZ - The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says a K9 who escaped from a deputy's backyard Saturday night has been found.

MCSO says "Sham" is a narcotics detection dog for the department.

He is an extremely energetic dog and somehow got out of a deputy's backyard near Sossaman and Baseline roads around 10:45 p.m., according to MCSO.

Sheriff's spokesman Joaquin Enriquez said Sham wandered into a garage and the woman who found him put up an ad and was going to see if he had an identity chip.

Enriquez said Sham apparently jumped a 6-foot wall so they'll look into how to keep that from happening again.
