On August 31, 2018 the Fairview Township Police Department received a call from the DLA Police Department at 2001 Mission Drive in Fairview Township. They advised that they had an incident whereby they were requesting assistance from the Fairview Township Police Department.
Upon arrival, the DLA Police advised that a tractor and trailer attempted to gain entry to the military installation through the Normandy Drive truck entrance gate. During a K-9 search of the exterior of the truck, the K-9 officer alerted to the truck. DLA Police then conducted a consent search of the vehicle and found drug paraphernalia and a green leafy substance in a bag.
Shortly after the search, the two federal officers and the K-9 who searched the truck began experiencing physical symptoms consistent with exposure to an unknown substance. The officers were transported to Harrisburg Hospital for treatment and the K-9 was transported to the Rossmoyne Animal Hospital for treatment. The K-9 tested positive for exposure to Phencyclidine, otherwise known as PCP. The two federal officers and the K-9 police officer were treated and released.
