Officials from the Niagara Frontier Transport Authority (NFTA) and their sharp-nosed, trustworthy K-9 smelled about 54 kilograms of cannabis, valued at an estimated $ 400,000 ($ 500,000).

An NFTA official had previously received information from law enforcement officers in Sacramento, California about a large amount of cannabis that may have been transported on an inbound flight to Buffalo Niagara International Airport, according to a Facebook post by the NFTA Transit Authority.

To quickly find out if the intelligence was good or not, K-9 Zev and the handler were called in to take a look. The drug detection dog showed the suspicious baggage in question and positively warned of the presence of narcotic odor on all five bags.

A search warrant was obtained and Zev’s human colleagues took over, searched the bags and found the hefty amount of cannabis in them, the post notes.

It’s not clear if there were any arrests made in connection with the intercepted drugs, but Zev received a lot of love on Facebook for a job well done.

Another K-9, this time in Nashville, Tennessee, has been credited with helping discover more than 100 pounds of weeds in the luggage of two Georgia women, WKRN reports.

The smugglers apparently tried their best to mask the cannabis scent, hiding the vacuum-sealed weed packs between clothes soaked in air freshener. But the trick wasn’t enough to keep the K-9 Havoc narcotic detection device from smelling. He quickly signaled that something was wrong with the four bags on a Southwest Airlines flight out of San Jose, California.

There was another bust in Buffalo recently where more than $ 1.3 million ($ 1.6 million) in cannabis was confiscated from U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials at the Peace Bridge Cargo Facility.
