K9 officer discovers $1M worth of meth, fentanyl inside car hauler


A K9 officer detected more than one million dollars worth of fentanyl pills and meth inside of a car hauler in Arizona late last week. 

The considerable amount of drugs was discovered on July 7th on Interstate 17 near Cordes Junction. 

According to AZ Family, the car hauler semi truck was initially stopped for “routine equipment violations,” but deputies soon noticed some discrepancies in the paperwork, so officers decided to investigate further.

Officers then used a K9 officer to investigate each of the cars individually, and that’s when the 203 pounds of meth and 28,000 fentanyl pills were uncovered inside of a van being transported on the car hauler.

“We know drug traffickers like to get creative, but this is just an example of how nothing gets past our deputies or our dogs,” said Sheriff David Rhodes, Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office.

As of Monday morning, July 12th, no arrests had been made and the incident is still under investigation.
