K-9 Sniffs Out Cocaine On Driver


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.

    I for one appreciate the deputies who put their lives on the line for us on a daily basis out on the streets and in the jail. The ones who are able to maintain their personal integrity while facing adversity from within and from the outside are worth their weight in gold! Keep up the good work - we need you. God Bless you and your families!

    Wow! We got Bin Laden and we are also winning the war on drugs! Things are getting better. Still no story on the CIA drug trade.

    Seven grams of crack cocaine is a lot of dope. Think 7 sugar packets that you would put in coffee. Each packet is 1 gram. 7 grams in conjunction with the cash is a very good indicator that this guy was a dealer. Great bust Pueblo, keep up the good work!

    19 years old $1600 bucks and 7.4 grams of crack. A dealer off the streets. Probably selling to high and middle school kids. Getting scumbags like this leads to the "kilo/pounds" seizures. Tyrone in lock up would love to meet this new meat. Yuck Yuck.

    @ Cracking up. You are right on. Big deal. Who is so lame that they have to make a case over 7 grams and then act as if "the Law" is so important. Dickens was right about the law.

    I don't mind the drug bust at all, but for the police to be reduced to pulling people over for no front tag and tint, give me a break!!
