ERIC SCOTT RADIO | LAKE CHARLES, LA. — On January 14, at approximately 9:00 a.m., Combined Anti-Drug Task Force (C.A.T. Team) Detective Cpl. Kevin Hoover conducted a stop on a truck traveling eastbound on I-10 near the Lake Charles loop for a traffic violation.

When the driver of the truck began to act suspiciously during the traffic stop, Cpl. Hoover asked for permission to search the truck and he refused.

After Cpl. Hoover’s K-9 “Mako” alerted to the odor of narcotics coming from the truck, a search was conducted and a bag containing approximately 2.5 pounds of cocaine, with an estimated street value of $100,000, was recovered from under the rear seat of the truck.
