ROBERTSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WTVF) — A K-9 with the Robertson County Sheriff's Office is trotting off into the sunset.

K-9 Kane retired from duty June 28 after more than six years of service to the Robertson County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies say Kane contributed to 433 arrests and citations along with more than 350 incidents of narcotics found.

Kane will retire with his handler, Robertson County Detective Brett Keck.

“K-9 Deputy Sheriff Kane will be missed here at the Sheriff’s Office. He was an important part of the Sheriff’s Office team. He has been a great asset for serving and protecting the citizens of Robertson County," said Sheriff Michael Van Dyke.

He started with the department in October 2012.
