Nampa Police tase, shoot aggressive dog during drug investigation

NAMPA, Idaho (KBOI) -- Nampa Police says an officer had to shoot a dog during a drug investigation last week at a local home.

NPD says officers were serving a drug search warrant on the 1200 block of South Cassia Feb. 27 when a dog attacked and bit one of the officers.

Additional officers were able to get the dog inside a room when another dog started being very aggressive toward them, police say. An officer shot off his taser gun, but the dog got up and started attacking the officers again.

NPD says an officer then shot and wounded the dog. The injured dog was taken to a local veterinarian for treatment. Two other dogs were taken to the Canyon County Animal Shelter.

Officials say drugs, paraphernalia and a gun was found at the home. Police arrested Misty Wade, 46, Caleb Hollaway, 27, and Cruz Barfus, 24.
