Heroin is mass-produced in southeast Asia and shipped or flown to drug cartels in Mexico, which bring it across the border in vehicles, Woodward said.

The deputy who made the arrest is a member of the Central Oklahoma Metro Interdiction Team, a multiagency unit operating under an agreement between the Oklahoma County district attorney's office, Oklahoma City Police Department and the sheriff’s office.

Thor helped law officers find 34 pounds of methamphetamine in a traffic stop Feb. 27 in Oklahoma City. Four people were arrested in that incident, Myers said.

“He’s been a good dog,” Myers said. “This is why we have these canines, because they can do things that we as humans cannot do, using their nose. It’s a great benefit to law enforcement.”
