K9 Drug Bust

Colorado State Patrol and the Weld County Sheriff’s Office worked together with K9 Loki for a major drug bust in Colorado. More than $500,000 worth of the drug seized.

According to the Weld County Sheriff’s Office, Colorado State Patrol pulled a driver over on Aug. 30 at Weld County Roads 49 and 42. The area is about eight miles south of Kersey. The sheriff’s office was assisting in the traffic stop as K-9 Loki performed an open-air sniff outside of the vehicle.

Loki alerted deputies to the presence of drugs. Authorities searched the vehicle and found 88 pounds of methamphetamine with an estimated value of $528,000.

Some of the drugs were packed in a suitcase found in the backseat of the pickup truck, but most of the drugs were hidden inside the truck’s spare tire.
