CALIFORNIA, MO – Deputies in Moniteau County say they arrested a suspect on drug charges last week with the help of their resident canine, Mizzou.

The Sheriff’s Office says, the traffic stop was made Thursday after observing a vehicle in California, Missouri without license plates. A search of the vehicle was denied to officers by the driver, identified as Jason Williams of Syracuse. Mizzou reportedly alerted officers to suspected methamphetamine in the vehicle, whereupon, deputies took Williams into custody in lieu of $25,000.
