HOMEWOOD, Ala. (WIAT) – A pair of K9′s are more than proving their worth after being added to the Homewood Police Department over the last year.
You are looking at roughly $125,000 of meth and Crystal Meth along with a semi-automatic pistol, ammunition, and digital scales.
Homewood patrol officers made the initial discover during a traffic stop on Tuesday, May 14th but the dogs found the bulk of the drugs concealed in a hidden compartment in the car.
Asked what message he hopes the record bust sends to drug traffickers Chief Jim Roberson says “If you are thinking about that; stay out!”
The suspect is 19 year old Mexican national, Juan Canedo. He’s being held on no bond on charges of trafficking, carrying a pistol without a permit, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
