photo of Trooper Larry KrauseIt started as a routine traffic stop for a tag light violation and blue lights on the hood of the car. It ended with the arrest of two men from Pasco County.

Trooper Larry Krause stopped a 1995 Ford sedan on Chancey Road at 9:30 p.m. on May 4, 2004. The male driver was arrested by Krause for DWLSR(Driving While License is Suspended or Revoked). While conducting an inventory of the vehicle, Trooper Krause located chemicals and a propane tank known to be used to manufacture methamphetamines. Trooper Krause contacted the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office to assist with the found items. The male passenger was also arrested in relation to the drug charges.

Looking past the traffic stop led to the removal of 2 criminals and a significant amount of dangerous chemicals from Florida’s roads!
