CHP Valley Division says, back on the night of May 6, an officer pulled over a speeding car. As the officer went up to speak with the driver, CHP says the officer noticed “criminal indicators” – prompting the officer to put the K9 to work.

After getting an alert from the K9, officers started searching the car.

Officers soon discovered about 200 pounds of suspected methamphetamine inside four large cardboard boxes.

No other details about the drug bust have been released at this point in the investigation.
