YREKA, Calif. – Three bite suits used for training K9 officers have been stolen from the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office.

The suits cost close to $2,000 each.

The suits were previously purchased for the Sheriff’s Office by the Siskiyou County Canine Association, a non-profit organization.

The bite suits are used primarily for canine training but also are used in public demonstrations held throughout the county, including inside of school classrooms.

Sheriff Jeremiah LaRue said the suits are “extremely vital” to his operations. He said they were stolen from what was believed to be a secure storage area.

Look in the gallery to see photographs of all of the stolen bite suits.

The Sheriff is asking anyone with information about the missing bite suits to call their dispatch at (530) 841-2900 or the Yreka Police Department at (530) 841-2300.
