Truck searched by drug unit

May 14, 2003

Albany-- A minor traffic accident in Albany Wednesday morning results in a search of a tractor trailer truck for drugs. But Investigators find nothing.

 This truck bumped a car on Radium Springs at Oakridge about 9:30, and drove down South Jefferson. Albany Police stopped the truck at this shopping center. The three Hispanic men in the truck were not listed on the log.

 Drug dogs reacted positively to a small compartment at the front of the trailer.

Albany Dougherty Drug Unit officers took the truck to their headquarters, and unloaded dozens of pallets of flowers. They opened the panel and examined it carefully, but no drugs.

 The truck, owned by Lovell Farms from Miami, was on it's way to Columbus. Drug unit officers loaded the flowers back on the truck, and sent the men on their way.
