The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department's new K9 made his first drug arrest Sunday while assisting a Madison Police Department investigation.
Senior Patrolman Joe Baker made a traffic stop of a vehicle driven by Daniel F. Kee, 23, of Madison in the 3000 block of Michigan Road.
While speaking with Kee, Baker noticed a small plastic bag with a white powder film on the floor on the car, according to a news release from Chief Dan Thurston.
Kee denied officers a request to search the car, resulting in Glock, the new K9 at the sheriff's department, to be brought in, Thurston said.
Glock indicated drugs were present in the car, and officers found a half-smoked marijuana blunt, police said.
Kee was arrested on a charge of possession of marijuana and taken to the Jefferson County Jail.
