According to information released by the sheriff’s office, a deputy assigned to the BCSO special operations unit pulled over a pickup truck with Georgia plates for an unspecified traffic violation. The stop took place Wednesday near the 34-mile marker on northbound I-65, which would put it just northeast of the causeway across the Mobile-Tensaw Delta near Bay Minette.
“During the stop, the deputy became suspicious that the suspect may be trafficking in illegal narcotics,” said the release. A search of a trailer being pulled by the truck revealed the drugs.
