The Cambridge Police Department mourns the loss of one of their fellow officers after a brief and sudden illness.

Tuesday, the Department laid to rest Canine Ruger.

Ruger served as a dual purpose canine during the city's nighttime hours for over three years. He specialized in narcotics detection, but was also utilized as a patrol dog to track and apprehend suspects, search buildings and find hidden articles.

The canine officer was handled by Patrolman Roy Angler a 12-year veteran of the department.

The two logged over 650 hours together before certifying with a perfect score by an independent state evaluator..

The City of Cambridge, the Police Department and the Angler family said Ruger will be sorely missed.
