K-9 finds pot, cocaine in car trunk

Kevinreed Kevin Reed probably wishes he hadn't run that stop sign.

A Sunrise police officer stopped Reed, 22, as he drove his blue Chrysler 300 through an intersection in the 5200 block of Northwest 94th Avenue. It happened shortly after midnight on a recent night.

When the officer began speaking with Reed, he smelled a "strong odor of cannabis inside the car, according to a police report.

Another officer and his K-9 companion, Kira, were called to the scene.

Police give this account of what happened next:

Kira was let inside the car, where she began sniffing the drivers side floor board. Officers found about two grams of marijuana and a scale behind the passenger seat.

Then, Kira was let loose inside the trunk of the car. She began sniffing a purple gift bag, which, police later found, contained a gram of loose marijuana, a small clear Ziploc bag filled with cocaine and a black scale with cocaine residue on it.

Reed, who lives in Sunrise, was arrested and booked into jail. He was charged with cocaine possession, marijuana possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and failing to obey a stop sign.
