“The deputy ordered Nox to conduct an Open-Air Sniff of the Vehicle and Nox was alerted,” the sheriff’s office stated in a statement.

Sheriff Christopher Schmaling stated that “once again, the instincts and skill of trained and experience deputies led to a significant seizure controlled substances from an ‘routine traffic stop”.
