KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — The search of a vehicle in Klamath County last week yielded large amounts of smuggled drugs, according to Oregon State Police.
State troopers made the stop on Thursday, February 20, along Highway 97. After pulling over a black Chevrolet Tahoe with California plates, the agency said that they found a man driving the car and a woman with a baby as passengers.
"During the course of the traffic stop, multiple factors of criminal activity were observed," OSP said.
After troopers brought in a K-9 to check out the outside of the vehicle, the dog reportedly alerted to the presence of drugs. A search eventually found about 66 pounds of methamphetamine, two kilograms of heroin, ten "suspected fentanyl pills," and a loaded gun.
The driver was taken to the Klamath County Jail for possession, distribution, and manufacturing of narcotics, as well as being a felon in possession of a firearm. OSP said that the woman was released to care for the baby while the investigation continues. The agency said that it notified Child Protective Services of the bust.
