OSP K-9 helps sniff out meth on traffic stop

      ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Two women were arrested by Roseburg police on Friday, after a drug sniffing dog was brought in to assist during a traffic stop.

      Police say an officer spotted a 2002 Kia being driven by Tyler Michael Osborne, 21, at about 5:30 p.m. The officer knew that Osborne had a suspended license and conducted a traffic stop near the intersection of Diamond Lake and Winchester.

      Police say two females were passengers in the car, identified as Misty Louise Hughes, 31, a local area transient, and Meghan Christine Tate, 25, of Roseburg.

      An OSP K-9 responded to the scene to assist the officer, and authorities say the dog alerted to the presents of narcotics.

      Police say a search led to the discovery of user amounts of methamphetamine.

      Officers arrested Hughes and Tate, and they were charged with unlawful possession of meth. Officials say Hughes also had a warrant for her arrest for a parole violation.

      Osborne was cited with a traffic violation and the two women were taken to the Douglas County Jail, where they were cited and released.
