Easton Boy Scout builds K-9 sniffing wall for Eagle Scout project

-

EASTON — A local Boy Scout constructe­d a K-9 sniffing wall for his Eagle Scout project to help police dogs in the region train to sniff out drugs.

Ben Tuttle, a member of Boy Scout Troop 190 in Easton, approached the Easton Police Department in spring 2021 with an offer to build a K-9 sniffing wall for his Eagle Scout project.

A Facebook post from the Easton Police Department said:

“We kindly accepted his offer and we watched him along with many others create this extraordin­ary wall that will be used by K-9 units in the region as they train! Ben Tuttle is an absolutely amazing young man with a vision! He is a future leader, that we will be keeping our eye on!”

EPD thanks Tuttle, Boy Scout Troop 190 and all that donated to make this project a reality, including architect Pamela Gardner, VFW Easton, Potomac Valley Brick Easton, Bryan & Sons, and Rental Works Grasonvill­e.
