COOPER COUNTY, Mo. – The Missouri Highway Patrol says K-9 Rony sniffed out over 100 pounds of marijuana during a car stop in Cooper County Saturday afternoon.

The arrest report says Zechariah Heryford, 37, of Galt, California, was taken into custody around 5:30 p.m. yesterday. When Heryford began acting suspiciously during the stop on Interstate 70, the trooper asked for consent to search. Once refused, Rony checked the vehicle and alerted to drugs.

Heryford is eligible to post bond on an allegation of trafficking drugs in the second degree.
