[ISP] Whitley Co. Traffic Stop Yields 38 Kilos of Cocaine
Start Date: 2/3/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 2/3/2014
Entry Description
Whitley County, IN-A Fort Wayne truck driver was arrested this past Saturday night by the Indiana State Police on charges related to the possession of cocaine following a traffic stop on US 30 near Columbia City.

At approximately 7:05 p.m., a semi tractor trailer was observed traveling eastbound on US 30, east of State Road 9 when it was said to have committed a traffic violation as well as had an equipment violation that needed to be addressed.

The vehicle combination was stopped and as troopers spoke with the driver, 69 year old Guadalupe Quintanilla, they became suspicious of potential criminal activity. A State Police K-9 was summoned, and when it alerted on the semi tractor, Quintanilla gave permission for troopers to conduct a search.

During the search of the passenger compartment, troopers found 38 individually wrapped packages containing a white powder, later identified as cocaine, with an approximate weight of 38 kilograms. This amount has an approximate street value of between three and four million dollars. Quintanilla was taken into custody without incident and incarcerated in the Whitley County Jail without bond.
