(ATLANTIC) A Washington man was busted for drugs on Interstate 80 in Cass County Monday afternoon.
Iowa State Patrol Trooper Wayne Brosam said at around 4:40 p.m. he stopped a white 4-door Honda Accord near the 51-mile marker on westbound I-80 for speeding. Brosam said during his conversations with the driver he noticed several indicators of criminal activity.
“At that time I went ahead and asked for consent to search his vehicle, which I was denied, so I called Cass County Deputy Kyle Quist to bring his K9 to run a sniff on the vehicle,” said Brosam. “Quist’s dog did indicate a positive odor of narcotics in the vehicle and then during a search of the vehicle we found some personal use of marijuana and some drug paraphernalia and we also located $4,000 in U.S. currency that was located in one of the side pockets of the driver’s suitcase.”
Brosam said 42-year-old Lloyd Dual, of Eatonville, Washington, was arrested and transported to the Cass County Jail.
