The more you look at this story, the more you can tell this driver made the wrong people mad at him. The drug interdiction happened on Wednesday, Nov. 30, after the Indianapolis Metro Police Department (IMPD) “received reliable information pertaining to a shipment of narcotics which would pass through Marion County, Indiana.”
Officers were able to locate the truck in question near the Plainfield Rest Area on I-70 southwest of Indianapolis. With the help of K9 officer Mina, who sniffed out something suspicious around the truck, a search warrant was issued.
“This investigation indicates the great work of our Interdiction Detectives and the partnerships they have formed with other agencies to locate and remove illegal narcotics off the streets. IMPD continues to dedicate resources to combat crime with technology and the support of our community.” – IMPD Chief Randal Taylor to WISH-TV
