KUALA LUMPUR: The police honoured one of their own four-legged crimebusters when it gave a medal to a 12-year-old German Shepherd named Urby.

According to the police's official Facebook page on Friday (Nov 22), Urby was presented with a medal after successfully locating the body of a murder victim, along with his handler, Kpl Umbat Selan from the KLIA police headquarters.

The victim had been reported missing days before the discovery.

The find eventually led to the police solving the case in October.

The ceremony was held during the closing event of a K-9 unit handler course at the Police Training Centre on Friday.
