According to officers, the suspect’s vehicle was pulled over shortly after 2 a.m. Tuesday on South Nottawa Street at Bogen Road following a traffic violation.
According to a department media release, the officer in charge of the stop became suspicious of drug activity because of the driver’s behavior. The driver was detained and K-9 Tucky was brought to the scene. A search of the vehicle was conducted after Tucky responded positively to the presence of narcotics.
