According to police, officers stopped the vehicle at the corner of South Patterson Drive and South Adams Street, just after midnight.

The vehicle was stopped because the officer noticed the license plate light was not working. Police say the plate was also obscured.

During the traffic stop, a K-9 officer checked the vehicle for narcotics and alerted on the vehicle several times.
