PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth is one of about 50 municipalities recently named in a major lawsuit, according to City Attorney Sean Surrisi. Kevin D. Miller was searched by a Plymouth Police Department K9 unit in 2009 following a traffic stop by the Marshall County Sheriffâ€™s Department. Miller has since claimed that Plymouthâ€™s K9 â€” and all other dogs trained at Vohne-Liche Kennels in Peru â€” are unreliable. Miller claims that the dog falsely detected drugs in his vehicle and that the search was traumatizing to himself and his wife. Miller was not arrested or charged.
