Ully was Officer Brian Adams’ partner from August 2001 through December 2007.
“During his tour, K9 Ully was responsible for the apprehension of over a 100 criminals, including burglars, robbers and kidnappers,” said police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater in a statement. “Those who knew K-9 Ully knew him as a warrior and a hunter of those who preyed on the innocent and fled from justice. He will be missed and remembered for his dedication to the BBPD.”
In October 2004 Ully led officers to one of three men suspected of stealing a woman’s purse from an outdoor table at the Boynton Ale House. Ervin Neal, 22, Patrick Evans, 24, and Ernest Neal, 19, led police on a chase in a stolen blue Chevrolet Impala after allegedly grabbing the woman’s purse.
All three West Palm Beach men bailed out of the vehicle. Ervin Neal and Evans were caught by Lake Worth and Boynton officers. Ully led officers to Ernest Neal, who was hiding in bushes.
In June 2003 Ully caught a man who police say used a handgun to rob two women of their cash and then fled the scene in their vehicle. Jesus Ruiz, 18, was chased by four police agencies, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s helicopter, and the U.S. Coast Guard. In the end, it was Ully who found Ruiz at the Four Seasons Resort on Palm Beach.
