Nebraska Drug Dog Proving Her Worth

A 3-year-old yellow lab has been proving her worth to the York County Sheriff's Department.

Tikka recently found nearly $28,000 during a routine traffic stop. And Tikka found nearly $12,400 in suspicious cash during an earlier stop.

In the most recent stop, no drugs were found in the vehicle, so the driver and his passenger were allowed to leave. The money stayed behind, and federal authorities were notified about the seizure.

The law lets law enforcement agencies seize cash suspected of use in the illicit-drug trade, even if they don't prosecute the people driving the vehicles where the drugs or money are found.

If a judge rules the cash was properly taken, 80 percent goes to the force that seized it.
