CHICAGO — A Chicago K-9 is being credited for sniffing out $10 million worth of marijuana during a traffic stop.

On Sunday, Chicago police were conducting a narcotics investigation that led authorities to pull over a vehicle suspected of drug trafficking, CBS News reported. Police said the K-9 was “alerted to the scent of narcotics,” which led police to find more than 1,500 pounds of “cannabis products” in the vehicle.

In total, police said they recovered a street value of $10 million in marijuana. The department shared several photos of the drug bust, including one of the K-9 sitting proudly with his bounty.

Investigators said officers learned the drugs were en route to Chicago from California.

The driver of the vehicle, identified as 42-year-old Jason Tanner, was charged with possession of more than 5,000 grams of marijuana, according to CBS Chicago.

“Thank you to Officers for your hard work in this large narcotics seizure,” the department wrote on Facebook.
