Police K-9s trained to sniff out child pornography

CONROE, Tex. -- Sheriff's deputies in Texas are using a new kind of cyber crime detective to help them track down child pornography offenders.

K-9s are being trained to sniff out storage media that's being used to keep child porn images.

What the dogs actually smell is the glue that binds the electronic media.

That means the thumb drives and SD cards.

Police say offenders will go to great lengths to try and hide the evidence.

A specially trained K-9 was a part of the raid on former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle's home this past summer.
