The Wyandotte Police Department in Michigan shared a hilarious post on social media accusing a police dog named Ice of stealing an officer’s lunch.
Police took a mugshot of Ice which has now become viral. They said they will consider the public’s opinion on how to proceed with the case.
“Stealing is not only a crime but it is morally wrong too. Some jobs, like that of being a police officer, require you to take an oath prior to starting. Within the officer’s sworn oath is the promise to protect a person’s property,” the post read.
According to the post, a current officer of the Wyandotte Police Department is under investigation for stealing which “happened two days ago at the station.”
The incident happened when Officer Barwig, who was having his lunch at the time, was called into the WPD jail for assistance.
Officer Barwig left his half-eaten lunch on the table to assist in the jail. A short while later, Barwig and another officer returned to the breakroom and found Officer Ice “strolling out of the room licking his chops.”
Officer Barwig’s remaining lunch was nowhere in sight. It completely disappeared!
As the post stated, Officer Ice has “invoked his fifth amendment right to remain silent and quite frankly is not cooperating with the investigation.”
Add to the strong evidence is the fact that Ice has a history of rummaging through trash cans. There have been similar accusations of the K-9 officer taking food right from coworkers’ hands as they walk by.
“WPD will consider our Facebook followers’ opinions on how to proceed with this investigation,” the post said.
Nearly 10,000 people have commented on the post.
One Facebook user offered to be Ice’s lawyer, “pro bone-o” while another wrote that “if the teeth don’t fit you must acquit.”
“Someone is setting him up!” another user commented.
WPD Chief Brian Zalewski told Fox News Digital that “The response from the Facebook post was great. There was an immediate defense of Ice and calls for the department charges to be dismissed.”
The WPD posted an update on Jan. 18, saying that they have been “threatened with massive protests” if the department moves forward with the investigation on Ice.
“Plus the overall public just doesn’t believe he is guilty. No video has been produced,” the department wrote in the update. “That being said Ofc Ice will not face any internal discipline or criminal charges.”
“The public has spoken. #nochargesforIce,” the post ended.
