Alabama traffic stop leads to recovery after K-9 alerts to drugs inside vehicle.
Stuffing cannabis inside moving boxes was hardly enough of a disguise to throw K-9 officer Tara off the scent of illegal cannabis earlier this week.
Per My State Line, two men aged 37 and 42, both from North Carolina, have been charged drug trafficking. One of the men is facing an additional charge of certain persons forbidden to carrying a firearm.
“We don’t like drugs coming through our community,” Steele Police Chief Mark Ward is quoted as saying. “I’m glad this amount is off the street.”
Commenting on Tara’s snap on Facebook, poster Jen Bollinger suggested a good deed demands a good meal. “She is a good girl. Someone needs to fix her a steak.”
K-9 officers have proved a helpful asset in identifying illegal cannabis, everything from dropping the dime on weed in a high school student’s car in the U.S. to cannabis in a box of Lucky Charms headed from the U.S. to the U.K. and parcels of marijuana from different countries destined for Ireland.
Cannabis remains illegal in Alabama aside from medical use for registered patients, notes information from FindLaw.
While possessing pot for personal use is a misdemeanour charge, selling, delivering or distributing cannabis is subject to two to 10 years in prison and as much as a $39,000 fine.
