A traffic stop Thursday leads to the seizure of over 7 grams of cocaine.
The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office pulled over a 1993 Chevrolet Caprice for no front license plate and dark window tinting in the 1100 block of W. Pueblo Blvd.
The Sheriff’s Deputy asked the driver of the vehicle, 19-year-old Michael Anthony Medina, if he was carrying any type of illegal narcotics in the car. Medina answered no.
The Deputy decided to have a K-9 conduct an “open air sniff” around the vehicle. The K-9 “PC” did smell the odor of illegal narcotics. After a continued search inside the vehicle the dog found approximately 7.4 gross grams of suspected crack cocaine in the vent.
Medina was taken into custody and found carrying over $1600.00 in cash. He was arrested on Possession of a Schedule II Controlled Substance and on an Intent to Distribute a Schedule II Controlled Substance. He is currently in the Pueblo County Jail.
