(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - A police K9 search led to a Lawrenceburg man being accused of heroin possession.
On September 4, James Settle's car was in the parking lot of Classic Car Wash and Quik Stop Oil Lube on U.S. 50 when Lawrenceburg Police K9 Officer Jacob Jump and his dog Newby were conducting routine free-air sniffs, said a press release from the Dearborn-Ohio County Prosecutor’s Office.
Newby hit on Settle’s vehicle during the patrol. A subsequent search turned up a drug kit containing about 2 grams of heroin and drug paraphernalia.
