Police say that 47-year old Jeffrey Knight was pulled over on 1-20 late Tuesday night, and after appearing to be under the influence, officers asked to search the vehicle. While Knight refused, a k-9 close to the vehicle alerted the officers to the potential presence of drugs in the car.

Upon a search of the car, 8 grams of meth were found. Knight was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.

Knight’s bond has been set at $100,000.
