Here’s a feel good story from the Modesto Police Department.
“Yesterday, our very own Deputy Wilson & MODESTO POLICE DEPARTMENT Animal Control Officer Olvera assisted the Delgado family by tracking down their dog “Charlie,” who went missing nearly 8 months ago. The Delgado family reached out to the Patterson Police Services (which is contracted through the Sheriff’s Department) and reported seeing a dog in Patterson looking similar to Charlie.
The Delgado family has been distraught ever since. Through some awesome detective work and multi agency coordination, Deputy Wilson and Officer Olvera were able to locate the dog at a house in Modesto and confirm through the dogs implanted microchip that it was in-fact Charlie.
With Deputy Wilson and Officer Olvera by their side, Charlie was reunited with the Delgado family after the long absence. Way to go Deputy Wilson & Officer Olvera for going the extra mile! Oh! did we mention Deputy Wilson is also one of our K9 agitators!?
Thank you for the hard work for man’s best friend! Deputy Wilson & Officer Olvera rock!
This rescue would have not been possible had the Delgado family not properly registered their dog with Stanislaus County.
It should also be noted that Deputy Wilson is a Marine. Happy Birthday Marine. #SemperFi”
