About 11:45 Thursday night, Officers conducted a traffic stop on a gray 2008 Honda Passenger Car in the 600 block of West Avenue X.  Once the vehicle stopped, both driver and passenger exited the vehicle and became argumentative with the Officers.  They also disregarded several orders from the officers and continued to walk away.  Both were handcuffed for safety concerns during the traffic investigation.

After obtaining consent to search the vehicle, a K9 Team responded and K9 Vader entered the vehicle.  Vader showed an immediate alert to the center console.  Subsequent to Vader’s alert, Officers located a digital scale, commonly used in the distribution of illegal drugs, inside the car.  Officers also located a clear plastic bag near the vehicle’s driver-side door that contained suspected narcotics.  The bag’s contents field-tested positive for the presence of Methamphetamine.
