Facebook Profile Created to Support K9 Dog Reunion
COLUMBIA - An anonymous person set up a Facebook profile to support the Columbia police officer Rob Sander who was fired after police say he used excessive force in handling a suspect. According to the page, an effort was underway to purchase Sander's K9 officer, Fano.
According to a tip to KOMU 8, city administrators informed Sander he could buy the police dog for $10,800. An anonymous donor came forward to the city on Tuesday with the full amount. On Wednesday, the tipster said the city took the offer off the table.
