K-9 named 'Jakie,' Fort Bend detective make $2M meth bust during traffic stop
HOUSTON – A traffic stop and a dog with a keen nose led to the arrest of two people in a meth bust Tuesday in the Richmond area, authorities say.
The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office says a detective and his K-9 partner, Jakie, discovered 56 pounds of crystal meth in the trunk of a Chevy Malibu on U.S. 59 North at Williams Way Boulevard.
Maria D. Carbajal-Ponce, 47, of Chicago, and Carlos Gallegos, 33, of Dallas, were arrested and booked into the Fort Bend County Jail on charges of manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance.
Authorities say the drugs had a potential street value of more than $2 million.
