Good boy, Gunner. You, too, human partner Sgt. Gene Davis of the Okanogan County Sheriff's Office in Washington state. The pair discovered two suitcases filled with methamphetamine in the 4-million-acre Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, reports CNN. Total weight: 186 pounds. Total street value: $1 million, reports KREM. The discovery of the suitcases in heavy brush came during a drug-smuggling investigation in the town of Mazama, near the Canadian border. "Cocaine has been the main narcotic purchased by detectives over the last few years but methamphetamine is a close second," per the Okanogan County Sheriff's Office's website.
