Lowndes County, GA -

The Valdosta Police recognized Moody Air Force Base's K9 units for their help with a bomb threat that was called into Valdosta High School last month.

Valdosta Police Chief Brian Childress said "a total of eleven folks that I counted came out, with three dog teams and that was a major help to us."

The K9's and their handlers split up and ultimately secured the school revealing that the threat was a hoax.

After tracking his cell phone cops arrested twenty year old Kahlil Furman who was charged with terroristic threats and acts, which is a felony. Moody's K9's are essential tools.. but to their handlers they mean a lot more.

Staff Sargeant Steven Daniel of the United States Air Force said "he is my best friend. Everywhere he goes I go. I'm here with him on weekends, we spend as much time as possible together. I take him around my kids, bring my kids around him also my family. we do a lot, we do everything together."
