CHICO, Calif. - A Chico Police Officer made a traffic stop on a vehicle near the 11300 block of Midway before requesting K-9 assistance, according to the Chico Police Department.

Chico Police says that during a scent search on the outside of the vehicle, the K-9 detected the presence of narcotic odor within the vehicle. Officers then searched the interior of the vehicle and located 10 grams of individually packaged Meth, individually packaged bags of Heroin, and an undisclosed amount of cash. 

The passenger in the vechile was identified as 38-year-old William Martin, who was placed under arrest for possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics for sale and transportation of narcotics, according to police. 

He was later transported to the Butte County Jail.

All of the K-9’s working for the Chico Police Department are dual purpose teams, and their on-going training in narcotic detection provides a valuable tool for law enforcement officers.
