Oklahoma City K9 sniffs out drugs at traffic stop
OKLAHOMA CITY — Thor the K9 sniffed out marijuana and prescription drugs during a traffic stop Tuesday, April 21.
Police say a deputy noticed a car following a trailer too closely on I-40 near Meridian.
Once pulled over, authorities say the 25-year-old driver, Cortez Jones from Tennessee, was visibly nervous. That’s when Thor was put to work.
The dog checked around the vehicle and gave a positive alert that there were drugs in the car. Deputies searched the car and found drugs in the spare tire.
There were 8.5 pounds of marijuana ($15,000 street value), 322 Hydrocodone pills ($1,500 street value), 65 Alprazolam pills ($130 street value), 50 Morphine pills ($500 street value) and marijuana edibles.
Jones was booked into jail on $10,000 bail with intent to distribute.
