Wednesday, June 6, at 2:04 a.m., Jefferson County deputies stopped a vehicle with Idaho license plates at mile marker 845 eastbound on Interstate 10 for a number of traffic violations. Deputies noticed that the stories of the two occupants did not match, and they were both overly nervous. Deputies asked for consent to search the vehicle, but the driver refused.

Port Neches police were called to the scene with a drug detection canine whose positive alert provided probable cause for a search of the vehicle.
