(WASHINGTON CO.) - Late Wednesday, Trooper Zach Smith stopped a vehicle on East Bethel Road near East Blue River Road in Washington County for a traffic violation.

During the course of the traffic stop reasonable suspicion was developed that criminal activity was afoot. Trooper Smith's K-9 partner "Riggs" was deployed and provided a positive alert on the vehicle for possible drug activity.

A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed that the driver, 39-year-old Nathan A. Blake of Pekin, was in possession of meth.

Blake was placed under arrest and charged with possession of meth and maintaining a common nuisance. He was incarcerated at the Washington County Jail without incident.
