Traffic Stop Yields Drugs and Guns - Tuesday, November 2, 2010

On Saturday, October 30, 2010, Deputy Craig Landry while on routine patrol initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle suspected of speeding. Upon approaching the vehicle, Deputy Landry smelled and extremely strong odor of burnt marijuana emitting from the vehicle which was occupied by the driver and 3 passengers. The driver refused to give the deputy consent to search so a K-9 unit was called to the scene. Deputy Tyson Mire's K-9 named Smokey alerted on the vehicle and it was subsequently searched by the deputies. In the vehicle a blue container was located that had 5 white rocks individually wrapped suspected to be crack cocaine and 2 guns under the front seat (Black Cobray 45 caliber pistol and Black Iver Johnson 32 caliber pistol).
