ARNOLD (KDKA) — A man is now facing charges after a routine traffic stop in Westmoreland County on Wednesday afternoon ended with a major drug bust.
Arnold Police say it all started just after 5:30 p.m. Wednesday when officers pulled over a car for a vehicle code violation.
Inside the vehicle, police say they found a water bottle that contained about three ounces of powder cocaine.
Police say the suspect, 44-year-old Michael Fisher of Homestead, also had other drugs in the Cadillac, including about six ounces of crack cocaine, 14 grams of marijuana and 34 stamp bags of heroin.
It all has an estimated street value of $27,000.
The Lower Burrell Police K-9 handler and his dog helped find the drugs in five other containers on the passenger seat of the car.
Fisher was initially pulled over in the 1200-block of Drey Street for having tinted windows that were too dark, according to the Tribune Review.
In addition to the drugs, police say they also found close to $4,000 in cash on Fisher.
Arnold Police arrested him and he’s now facing numerous drug charges.
