Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Deputy Morris / September 12, 2018

Deputy Neil Clayton introduced the newest member of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office to members of the Mecklenburg County Board of Supervisors Monday night. K-9 Officer Morris, a German Shepherd from Poland, is certified in search and rescue, tracking, drug searches, and more.

He and Clayton recently completed several weeks of intensive training as the two learned to work together. Clayton said he’s already demonstrated his skills assisting Clarksville Police Sgt. Tim Garner and members of the Southside Drug Task Force during a recent drug bust.

Garner had stopped Paul Tolliver IV during the early morning hours of Sept. 3 for various traffic violations, including driving on a revoked license. Morris was called in to help with an inventory search of the vehicle and found nearly an ounce of methamphetamine with a street value of nearly $3,000 hidden in the car. The search also uncovered, a digital scale, packaging materials, drug paraphernalia, and $501 in cash.

Tolliver was charged with felony possession of a Schedule I or II controlled substance, felony assault on a law enforcement officer after he reportedly tried to head butt one of the investigators as he was being arrested, and a misdemeanor charge of driving on a revoked license. He is currently being held at Meherrin River Regional Jail without bond.
