YCSO K9 alert leads to marijuana charges for man
Yavapai County Sheriff's deputies have arrested a Flagstaff man on charges of transporting marijuana for sale and possessing marijuana for sale.
Sheriff's spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn, said a deputy and his K9 partner Elliot stopped Colton Wolf, 29, on Wednesday for speeding on Interstate 40 west of Seligman.
While talking to Wolf, Elliot alerted on the open driver's side window and tried to jump through the window into the man's Mitsubishi Lancer.
During a search of the Lancer, the deputy found a pound of marijuana in a duffle bag packaged in four vacuum heat sealed plastic bags, D'Evelyn said.
Wolf admitted to buying the marijuana for $2,000 from a California contact who supplies medical marijuana to state licensed facilities and who was willing to sell to Wolf directly.
Deputies booked Wolf at the Prescott Detention Center on one count each of possession of marijuana for sale and transporting marijuana for sale. He paid a $5,000 bond and got out on Christmas Day.
Elliot's partner rewarded Elliot with his favorite toy.
