Columbiana police team wins three gold medals in K-9 competition

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIANA, Ohio -

People living in the City of Columbiana have an award winning K-9 team keeping watch over them.

Police Chief Tim Gladis says that K9 Csuti and his handler, Patrolman Bryan Granchie walked away with four medals while competing earlier this month in the Ohio Police and Fire Games in Canton.

Granchie and Csuti came in first place, winning gold medals in three categories.

The team was tops in the Residential Building Search competition by finding a “suspect” hiding in a bedroom on the second floor of a house in just 8 seconds.

It took K9 Csuti two minutes to sniff out more than 20 vehicles to find four packages of narcotics, getting him a gold medal in the Vehicle Narcotics category.

Csuti also won the gold in the Large Area/Building Narcotics contest by locating three packages of narcotics hidden in a large industrial area in just over one minute.

Granchie and Csuti won the silver medal for Tactical Skills.

“Congratulations to our K9 team for their outstanding performance at the Games!”, wrote Chief Gladis in a Facebook post. “Bryan and Csuti are the REAL DEAL and proudly represented our City and the Columbiana Police Department.”

Chief Gladis also thanked donors and sponsors of the K-9 team.
