My partner and I worked graveyard last night. 😴 Early in the morning, I alerted on the driver’s door of a vehicle after a traffic stop. The driver did not want us to search (we did anyway!) and now I see why!! He looked oddly familiar…and then I remembered I had found drugs in another car he was in a couple weeks ago!!
During a walk around the vehicle, K9 Toby helped identify 12 grams of heroin that had been separated out for sales and a scale.
