A spokesperson for the El Centro Police Department has confirmed that officers arrested two men on suspicion of transportation and sales of methamphetamine.
The incident happened in mid-April, according to a report by KMYA.com, when police pulled over a Nissan Altima for a routine traffic stop. The driver failed to use his turn signal when making a turn, police said; when the officers approached the car both the driver and passenger seemed very nervous.
A police K-9 was used to sniff around the vehicle; the dog alerted its handlers that drugs were inside the car. A search uncovered four pounds of methamphetamine was hidden inside the vehicle. The driver and passenger were read their Miranda rights, handcuffed and taken to the Imperial County Jail. They’ve been charged with possession of meth for sale and transportation of methamphetamine.
