BELLINGHAM — The Whatcom County sheriff’s office says more than 26 pounds of what’s believed to be cocaine has been seized from a California man during a traffic stop north of Bellingham.
The sheriff’s office said deputies worked with the Department of Homeland Security to pull the car over Thursday afternoon on a local road.
The Bellingham Herald reported that a drug dog alerted deputies to the presence of drugs and the driver consented to a search of his vehicle.
Homeland Security seized the car and drugs. The driver was brought in for investigation. He was not identified.
