A traffic violation was observed on I75 south of the Breese Road exit, resulting in a traffic stop being conducted at the Fuel Stop on Breese Road.

A Lima Police Department narcotics trained K9 performed a free-air sniff around the vehicle, giving a positive indication to narcotics being present. A probable cause search of the vehicle was conducted and large amounts of narcotics were recovered. Approximately seven ounces of suspected methamphetamine, a half ounce of suspected fentanyl, drug paraphernalia, and $1510.00 U.S. currency were located and seized as evidence.
