Michael Rechner

Kody Frenna

A simple traffic stop landed two young men from Las Vegas in jail for high level drug trafficking.

On March 31 at 2:49 a.m., members of the Mineral County Sheriff’s Office made a traffic stop on a silver, 2013 BMW 528 XI bearing the Nevada license plate of “SKKRRT”.

Officers noticed that the BMW had failed to stop at a stop sign.

After pulling the vehicle over, the officers became suspicious of possible criminal activity.

In a statement from the Mineral County Sheriff’s Office, it was explained that officers began a vehicle inventory which revealed, “Approximately 925.5 grams (2 pounds) of cocaine, over an ounce of marijuana, steroids and drug paraphernalia.”
