The drug dog for the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office found cocaine with an estimated $2000 in street value in the battery of a Ford pickup truck Friday during a traffic stop on Interstate 10. Three suspects from Laredo were arrested during the stop.
Fayette County Sheriff’s Narcotics Deputy Randy Thumann stopped the pickup while traveling eastbound on the interstate at midday Friday.
The drug dog ‘Lobos’ was called in because the several ‘criminal indicators’ the suspects were exhibiting.
Lobos searched the pickup truck and found the battery filled with 400 grams of cocaine.
Forty-five year old Mario Andrade, 20-year old Kimberly Flores and 26-year old Michelle Pottin, all of Laredo were arrested for the possession of controlled substances.
