On Nov. 10, 2005 at about 8:40 p.m. Joseph Nelson was fatally shot on the street in front of his home, located at 3285 76th Ave. in Westminster, after an altercation with the occupants of a dark colored SUV. Witnesses stated that a dark green 2-door Ford Explorer stopped on the street in front of Nelson’s residence. Nelson had been with some family and friends on the front porch of the residence.

All in a days work..... Just after 0900 hours on Saturday morning, a staff member at a local business called to report that a person was trapped inside of a wall near the bathrooms. They heard movement, banging around, and a hole had been punched out of the drywall into the bathroom. Officers arrived and confirmed everything reported by staff, it appeared that whoever was in the wall was using some sort of a tool to try to make a hole in the drywall to escape. Any time officers made any noise or spoke, the movement and noises would stop. All points of entry including the roof were checked, but no access point could be located. The fire department responded to help with a plan to cut a hole in the drywall. Just before this plan was executed, an observant officer noticed a woodpecker sticking its head out of the hole in the drywall. Animal management officers tried to get the woodpecker out, but eventually a pest control company had to be called in to help out. We just never know what calls we might have to respond to!

He officially hit the streets with his handler for the first time last week! His favorite thing to do aside from catching bad guys is chewing on his Kong. That’s a good boy! 🐾🚓
