LAFAYETTE PARISH - A Louisiana State Police K-9 assisted troopers in the discovery of a significant amount of methamphetamine during a traffic stop on Saturday (Jan. 30) afternoon.

But the traffic stop turned out to become more than a routine issuing of a ticket.

According to state police, Trooper K-9 “Jack” indicated a positive alert on the vehicle and officials proceeded to search the vehicle. This led to the discovery of and seizure of approximately 18 pounds of methamphetamine concealed in the vehicle's cargo area.

Police say the driver was arrested and booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on the drug-related charges.
