K9 leads drug bust in Forsyth County

The Forsyth County Police department uncovered several drugs from a vehicle with the help of their K9 Ivo.
Early Thursday morning on McFarland Parkway, a Forsyth County Deputy pulled over 28-year old Misty Slaton after witnessing an improper turn. The deputy says he then noticed some inconsistencies in Ms. Slaton’s behavior.
After declining a search of her vehicle, the deputy brought out K9 Ivo, a certified narcotics detection canine to conduct a free air sniff. K9 Ivo indicated the odor of illegal narcotics, giving probable cause for a search of the car.
During the search, deputies located 24 assorted multicolored pills, 1.1 pounds of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and a small amount of heroin. Read More
