On Friday evening, a Costa Mesa Police Department motor officer observed a vehicle speeding. The officer stopped the vehicle and contacted the driver.

The officer observed an open alcoholic beverage container in the vehicle and began a DUI investigation.

While the officer was conducting the DUI investigation, the CMPD K9 unit arrived to assist. K9 Bodi conducted a free-air sniff around the vehicle and alerted to the presence of illegal narcotics in the vehicle.

Officers conducted a search of the vehicle and discovered 27 pounds of methamphetamine and large quantity of cash.

CMPD detectives were notified and obtained a search warrant for the residences of the driver and passenger. Detectives located an additional kilogram of cocaine, 1000 fentanyl pills, and 40 pounds of marijuana.
