Earlier this month, “Kenyon,” a golden retriever belonging to an Oregon family started digging in their backyard. The 18-month-old pooch’s digging was not in vain, as he discovered a package in the ground. The family believed it was a time capsule, left there by someone who must’ve lived there before. They decided to film themselves opening it up to see what treasures from the past were inside of it.
However, when the family opened the package, their suspicions changed. They came to the conclusion that they had not found a time capsule, but a pack of drugs and alerted the authorities. The Yamhill County Sheriff’s Department responded and an officer identified the pack’s contents as 15 ounces of black tar heroin, worth an estimated $85,000.
According to KATU News:
Sheriff Tim Svenson praised Kenyon for his backyard discovery.
Svenson presented him with an official Yamhill County K9 citation ribbon and named him an honorary narcotics K9 for life.
