Nearly 40 Pounds Of Meth Found After Driver Offers Deputy A Joint

 

A routine traffic stop in Oklahoma turned into a major drug bust. Sequoyah County Deputy Colton Goff pulled over a U-Haul truck after the driver failed to signal while turning across two lanes of traffic. When Goff approached the driver, he could smell the odor of burning marijuana. The driver, identified as 33-year-old Takila Carpenter, admitted that she was smoking a joint and then offered some to Goff.

Goff declined her offer and detained her while a K9 unit searched the truck. The dog detected the presence of illegal drugs, and Goff discovered two duffle bags filled with methamphetamine. One bag was in the front seat, while the other bag was hidden underneath the floorboard of the truck.

Officials say they found about 37 pounds of meth and that it had a street value of around one million dollars.

"I'm proud of Deputy Goff, he did a great job as always, he is a very professional and proactive deputy and has made several large seizures of drugs, money, and guns," Sheriff Larry Lane said in a press release. "The street value of this meth load was approximately 1 million dollars."

Carpenter was taken to Sequoyah County Jail on suspicion of aggravated trafficking of CDS and is being held without bond.
