Peachtree City K9 Midas recently took part in two drug-related traffic stops, using his trusty sense of smell, leading to the arrest of 41-year-old Kristen Foltz.
In the first incident on May 11, PTC officers conducted a traffic stop on Highway 74 near Cooper Circle in Peachtree City, where Officer Adam Pendleton deployed Midas to perform a free air sniff test near the vehicle.
During Midas’ investigation, he indicated the odor of drugs were found in Foltz’ vehicle.
Foltz was found to be in possession of methamphetamine, arrested, and transported to Fayette County Jail.
The second incident came on May 12 when Officer Pendleton conducted a traffic stop on Highway 74 near North Peachtree Parkway for tag light failure. According to the report, Pendleton deployed Midas due to suspicion of drug activity.
Following the free air sniff test and a search, empty bags of heroine were recovered, along with multiple needles, according to the report, which states the “superficial” amount of drugs found led to no charges for the driver.
