CHICO, Calif.- A Chico Police officer and his K-9 are being credited with a major drug bust Tuesday.

Chico Police Officer Brandon Joseph and his K-9 "Pax" found the package at an undisclosed location in Chico. Pax alerted his handler on the container for illegal naroctics.

Officer Joseph served the signed search warrant on the container and its contents. Inside, officers found 133 pounds of processed marijuana and 400 grams of highly concentrated processed butane honey oil.

The estimated street value for the drugs is $500,000. The case will now be turned over to the Butte County Special Enforcement Unit for investigation.

Chico Police Sgt. Nick Bauer says the package was found in an undisclosed shipping facility and was being shipped from Chico to an out of state location.

Chico Police officials say this was a tremendous removal of drugs from the streets. Police have not made an arrest in the case.
