While conducting “Joining Forces Operations” during a seat-belt “Click-It or Ticket” event, Carson City Sheriff’s Office deputies conducted a traffic stop that triggered the arrest of both men in a car. Besides not wearing their seat belts, the deputies also discovered the suspects were trafficking drugs, money and paraphernalia. Even though the event is intended to educate drivers and passengers on the importance of seat belt use, deputies are always on the lookout for serious criminal activity.
The male driver was taken into custody for traffic violations including not wearing his seat belt as well as drug-related charges. The male passenger was also taken into custody for drug-related offenses. A substantial amount of cash was also seized. The investigation is ongoing.
Please drive carefully and remember to buckle up – and that drug-running is illegal.
