K-9 finds more than 25 pounds of marijuana at bus station

July 31, 2018

SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — A Louisiana police dog sniffed out more than 25 pounds of marijuana at a Greyhound bus terminal.

A news release from Caddo (KAD’-oh) Parish Sheriff Steve Prator’s office says Deputy Christan Dickey and a K-9 police dog named Sita were making routine checks of buses Monday morning at the station in Shreveport.

The dog alerted on a duffel bag in one bus.

That led to the discovery of a large bundle — more than 25 pounds— of marijuana. The estimated street value was $115,000.

There was no identification on the bag and the owner was not found.

The release says the bus was scheduled to make additional stops in Grambling and Ruston in north Louisiana, and in Vicksburg, Mississippi.
