GREELEY, Colo. (KDVR) – Less than a week before Governor Jared Polis signed a bill that elevated the punishment for those suspected of selling fentanyl, a suspect was pulled over with a rather large amount of pills suspected of containing the deadly compound.

According to the Greeley Police Department, a report of suspicious activity came into dispatch on Thursday, May 19, concerning a home that sits along the 1700 block of 28th Avenue.

Once the K-9 unit arrived at the address, they saw a suspicious vehicle leaving the area, which they proceeded to follow. The officer pulled the vehicle over along the 1800 block of 14th Avenue shortly thereafter.

Then it was time for the officer’s K-9 partner to go to work.
