K-9 Riggs Nabs Pekin Man With Meth


Late yesterday evening, Indiana State Trooper Zach Smith stopped a vehicle on East Bethel Road near East Blue River Road in Washington County for a traffic violation.


During the course of the traffic stop reasonable suspicion was developed that criminal activity was afoot. Trooper Smith’s  K-9 partner “Riggs” was deployed and provided a positive alert on the vehicle for possible drug activity.

A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed that the driver,  Nathan A. Blake, 39, from Pekin, was in possession of Methamphetamine.

Blake was placed under arrest and charged with Possession of Methamphetamine and Maintaining a Common Nuisance.

He was incarcerated at the Washington County Jail without incident.
