K9 Cesar

On May 29, Troopers Carlos Sisk & Brandon Eldridge made a traffic stop for an expired temporary tag on a Dodge Pick-up pulling a travel trailer. The driver, when asked, said the registration for the travel trailer and a weapon was in the trailer. A NCIC/FCIC check made on the driver found him to be a convicted felon. Upon asking about other weapons the driver advised of another handgun within the vehicle. It was located and rendered safe. K-9 Cesar was deployed and alerted to the seat cover and headrest of the driver’s seat. A search of the vehicle revealed $11,917 between the seat cover and the head rest. A search of the travel trailer resulted in locating two large duffle bags with marijuana residue inside. A metal tin was also located that contained approx three grams of marijuana. The Drug Enforcement Agency responded to the scene and took possession of the currency. Trooper Eldridge arrested the suspect for Misdemeanor amount of Marijuana. It was later determined that the suspect had had his rights restored and was determined that no violation had occurred with possession of the handguns.
