Drug dog finds half ton of meth during Oxnard traffic stop

March 22, 2021


An Oxnard Police Department K-9 detected a half ton of methamphetamine that was being smuggled in produce boxes last week.

Police Officer Caston and K-9 Rocky were conducting a traffic stop of a vehicle in Oxnard when Rocky alerted the officer to the presence of narcotics, the Oxnard Police Department stated in a Facebook post. During a search of the vehicle, Caston found more than 1,000 pounds of methamphetamine with a street value of $2.8 million.

Officers arrested the driver of the vehicle on numerous felony narcotics charges, as well as for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Following the incident, Rocky posed for a photo with the produce boxes containing the methamphetamine.

Rocky deserves a prime rib dinner with all the trimmings

Fantastic!!! One fat notch for the Meth HATers!

Finish the article, “Driver arrested”…. released later in the day, allowed to return to Mexico to get into another truck and make another trip to the US.

The headline shows half ton, the article says 1000 pounds. That is quite a discrepancy!

My bad…. math error

Good boy

This is a drop in the bucket of drugs moving throughout the country, but like rain, every drop helps.
