FLOYD COUNTY, IN (WAVE) - A man was arrested in Floyd County on Saturday after three pounds of meth - that's $150,000 worth - was found inside his vehicle during a traffic stop by Indiana State Police.

Shortly after 10:30 a.m. Saturday ISP Trooper Jeff Kellogg made a traffic stop of a 2006 Jeep Liberty, driven by 38-year-old Jose A. Rodriguez-Palma of Indianapolis, near the 2.4-mile marker on Interstate-265.

Trooper Nathan Abbott and a K-9 named Teague arrived on scene to conduct a narcotics sweep around the vehicle. Teague sniffed the drugs out in the rear of the Jeep.
