The Lewisville Police Department in Texas says its officers seized more than 270 kilograms, approximately 595 pounds, of methamphetamine in one of the largest drug busts in the department’s history recently.
At around 3 pm February 23rd, K-9 Officer Pat Robey received a call to assist another law enforcement agency that had been tipped off anonymously about a suspicious tractor trailer spotted near a major highway, according to the department.
“Officer Robey deployed his K-9 partner Stryker to conduct a free air sniff of the tractor-trailer and K-9 Stryker alerted to the presence of narcotics,” the department stated. “Officer Robey offered the Lewisville Police Department as a safe location to continue the search of the tractor-trailer.”
