With the help of a law-enforcement dog named Duke, the California Highway Patrol seized 83 kilograms of cocaine Tuesday after stopping a speeding big rig in Bakersfield.
A spokesman said Officer Brian Paxson, a member of the CHP's Canine Unit, pulled over the truck on northbound Highway 99 in the area of Panama Lane. The officer suspected criminal activity and the driver agreed to a search.
With Duke's help, the drugs were found in the truck's cab, the CHP said.
Jee-Leung Tsoi, 51, was booked into the Kern County jail.
