Missing K-9 Located; K-9 is in Good Health

On June 21, 2014 at approximately 9:00am, City of Poughkeepsie Police K9 Falcone was located.  K9 Falcone was located in a wooded area near the Highland Residential Center on North Chodikee Lake Road in the Town of Lloyd.  He is in good condition other than a huge appetite.

The City of Poughkeepsie Police Department and Police Officer Michael Barbagallo would like to thank all Law Enforcement agencies for their outstanding support in providing manpower, equipment and logistical support in trying to locate K9 Falcone.  In addition the tremendous support from community members.  Countless volunteers engaged in area checks on foot, by car, calls for support and possible sightings that were instrumental in helping the efforts.   The exchange of accurate information through social media helped keep all involved informed.

Once again Thank You to all!
