A South Georgia sheriff's department says they're winning a small battle in the war on drugs.

They're giving much of the credit to the newest officer on the force, Baker County Sheriff's office has a new crime fighting K-9 who specializes in sniffing out narcotics and landing criminals behind bars.

His name is Ace, a Labrador retriever who has only been on the job for four months.

With a number of seizures and arrests the sheriff's office says investing in the K-9 has already paid off.

"Without the use of the dog we wouldn't have been able to make some of the arrests we've made, he's a really good asset to the department," said Deputy Dale Glover, Baker Co. Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit.

Baker officials have mutual aid agreements to help other departments who need the aid of a drug dog.

Ace came to the department from the Dooly County Sheriff's office.
