What started as a routine traffic stop for speeding became a major drug bust for police officers in Walsenburg. Officer Buddy Townes, Corporal John Salazar and K9 officer Atos stopped the car late Friday night. In the process they discovered hydrocodone pills, marijuana, ecstasy, mushrooms and two guns.
The drugs have an estimated street value of $5,000. An unidentified 22 year old man was arrested and faces eight felony drugs and weapons charges.
