KALAMAZOO COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Two teens are in custody following a drug bust during a traffic stop in Three Rivers.
Police say they pulled over a white suv for a minor violation on N. Main at Moore Street but officers "observed indicators of narcotic involvement."
The driver granted them permission to search the vehicle. Officers say they found "other indicators" but no drugs.
They called in a K9 unit to search the vehicle.
The K9 named Hondo did a "free air sniff" around the vehicle and hit on a narcotic.
Officers conducted another search of the vehicle in the area determined by Hondo and found a hidden compartment with 1/2 ounce of drugs inside.
Police did not specify what kind of narcotics were found.
The driver, a 19 year old from Kalamazoo, and his 16 year old passenger were both taken into custody.
