¢ Gero, the Douglas County Sheriff's German shepherd, was called to duty twice in one day Friday: first, to sniff for drugs in a traffic stop around 8 a.m. in the 1200 block of Prospect Avenue, and then to help Lawrence Police search for a suspect who fled from a traffic stop around 4 p.m. at 17th and Kentucky streets.
