SALISBURY TWP., Pa. -

The Salisbury Police force is mourning the loss of one of its finest.

K-9 Zeus passed away, the department said.

Zeus served on the force from 2003-2010.

He tracked numerous suspects, found countless amounts of drugs, and conducted many school and public presentations in the township, the police department said on its Facebook page.

"Our condolences are with Officer Jason Laky who was his handler during his working years and caretaker after his retirement in 2010," the post continued.

Zeus retired from the force in 2010.
