Police dog Kilo detects suspected illicit drugs

A traffic stop on Highway 16 saw officers bringing in some canine help.

Service dog Kilo was brought on scene after a vehicle was stopped near Maidstone for having what officers deemed to be excessive windshield damage and window tint.

On September 5 at about 2:30 p.m., Saskatchewan RCMP Roving Traffic Unit called for the canine back up to assist in the subsequent investigation.

Kilo was able to detect 300 grams of suspected crack cocaine and 7 grams of illicit cannabis in the vehicle. Officers say the crack equates to about 600 daily doses.

The 30-year old driver, Bryce Zabrick of Edmonton has been charged with one count of alleged possession for the purpose of trafficking and one count of alleged possession of illicit cannabis.
