A 6-year-old mixed breed Belgian Malinois/Collie named Flash, an acting K-9, died Saturday, officials in Cape May Court House confirm.  Flash and another police dog were outside for around 30 minutes when Officer Russ Norcross found the dog whimpering and listless.  The death was likely heat related.

Authorities rushed Flash to nearby Ocean View Veterinary Hospital, but he could not be saved.

During their five years together, Officer Norcross and K-9 Flash conducted over 175 searches for explosives that included threats to schools, shopping centers and medical buildings.

Additionally, they both participated in community events throughout Cape May County such as DARE graduations, Boy Scout Demonstrations, National Night Out, 4-H Fairs and Lunch with Lynch for the Wildwood Schools.
