Two Missouri men face preliminary charges after a traffic stop resulted in police reportedly finding a Kilo of Cocaine.
The Indiana State Police said a trooper was working alongside Interstate 70 around 7:45 Thursday morning when he saw a black Chevy Cruze with the registration improperly displayed. During the stop, the Indiana State Police said the trooper detected several indicators of possible criminal activity.
An Indiana State Police K-9 handler was called to assist the trooper. A free air sniff resulted in a “positive indication” on the back passenger side of the vehicle. The Indiana State Police said a subsequent search yielded a package they estimated to be a Kilo of suspected Cocaine. The estimated street value of a Kilo of cocaine is approximately $100,000 dollars.
Police arrested Alberto Castro Analco and Ivan Pedro Mirares Roldan, both of Kansas City Missouri. Both men were preliminarily charged with dealing in cocaine or a narcotic drug and possession of cocaine or a narcotic drug. They were incarcerated in the Putnam County Jail.
