Police were aided in the operation by the MVPD's K9 officer, Zeus — a black Labrador. Using his olfactory powers, Zeus sniffed out 2.3 pounds of meth in a vehicle at about 6:30 p.m., in southern Santa Clara County.
Zeus, one of the department's narcotics dogs, is currently assigned to the Santa Clara County Specialized Enforcement Team. Police posted a photo fo Zeus posing with his discovery on the department's Facebook page.
The suspects, who included one 17-year-old, "were mainly from Fresno and Mountain View," Jaeger said. The juvenile was booked into Juvenile Hall and the adults were booked into San Jose Main Jail.
A spokeswoman with the police department said the police are planning to release more information on the case soon. Updates to the story will be posted on the Voice website, www.mv-voice.com.
