Detective Sergeant Darin Morgan and his canine partner Lux have been selected as the 2011 State of Oklahoma K-9 Team of the Year by the Association of Oklahoma Narcotics Enforcers (A-ONE).
Detective Morgan and Lux are assigned full time to the Norman Police Department’s Interdiction Unit. From March 2010 to March 2011, Detective Morgan and Lux have seized 45.1 pounds of high grade marijuana and in excess of $79,000 dollars in drug proceeds. Additionally, Detective Morgan was responsible for disrupting a multi-state criminal enterprise in which the perpetrators were making and selling fake computers.
Although primarily focused on interdiction, Detective Morgan also assists other divisions within the police department with narcotics related incidents. In December 2010, Detective Morgan assisted the Patrol Bureau with an interview of an individual believed to be dealing in large quantities of high grade hydroponic marijuana. The interview resulted in Detective Morgan acting as the lead case agent. This case resulted in the seizure of more than 50 lbs of hydroponic marijuana, drug proceeds in excess of $130,000, and has lead to several other investigations by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
Detective Morgan and Lux are a highly motivated, experienced, and skilled team of investigators. Their tireless efforts in the field of Drug Interdiction have earned them the A-One 2011 State of Oklahoma K-9 Team of the Year. The Norman Police Department is extremely proud of the favorable recognition they have brought to the Norman Police Department and the City of Norman.
