The Officer stopped the vehicle on Interstate 68 near the Willowbrook Road on ramp. The Officer made contact with the driver and passenger. A K9 Officer was summoned to the scene and conducted a scan of the vehicle. The K9 alerted to the presence of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS). A probable cause search of the vehicle was conducted. Officers located a substantial amount of suspected cocaine.
