Police: DUII stop leads to K-9 weed bust
ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Roseburg police say their drug sniffing dog helped turn a DUII arrest into a drug bust Tuesday night.
Police say that at around 11:40 p.m., an officer stopped a Ford pickup near Pine and Cass, and contacted the driver, Sean Michael Padilla, 34, of Santa Barbara, California.
Authorities say Padilla was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol and a controlled substance.
The officer says that during the investigation, he noticed an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle, and the Roseburg police drug sniffing K-9 was called in.
Police say the dog alerted on the vehicle and a subsequent search led to the discovery of over 2.5 ounces of marijuana.
Authorities say Padilla refused a breath test later at corrections, and was lodged by police on charges of DUII, unlawful possession of marijuana and refusing a breath test.
His bail was set at $110,000.
