Rookie K-9 makes massive marijuana bust!  Spokesman Dwight D’Evelyn with the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office says K-9 “Gemma,” who is new to the force, alerted deputies to a 90-pound stash of pot hidden inside a car that was pulled over for a traffic violation.  Deputies pulled over 42-year-old Missouri resident

Nate Shaffer for a minor traffic violation a couple days before Christmas when “Gemma” sniffed out a large duffel bag filled with 90 pounds of prepackaged marijuana bricks worth 50-thousand dollars.

Shaffer confessed to carrying the drugs and admitted to the deputies he had been offered several thousand dollars to transport the marijuana from Northern California to Texas.  Shaffer was arrested and booked on several charges including Possession of Marijuana and Transportation of Marijuana.
