Sparks Police are mourning the death of retired K9 officer Cimbo. He died Sunday due to declining health.

Cimbo was born in 2002 in Ruzomberok in Slovakia. He came to America three years later for training.

Cimbo served the City of Sparks until his retirement in October 2011 due to health issues.

Authorities tell us he was trained in patrol, narcotics, SWAT and evidence article searches. Cimbo is credited with 67 apprehensions, with five of those being physical. He also conducted over 450 narcotics searches.

Sparks police say he survived numerous injuries, including falling through a ceiling and being paralyzed due to a back injury in 2010. He recovered from that accident and came back to duty until the following year.
