K9 Sniffs Out Drug Suspects

(Michigan City, IN) - The drug-sniffing skills of a K9 dog led to two drug-related arrests during a traffic stop in Michigan City.


Kenneth Dikes, 31, of Niles, Michigan and Rashawn Moffitt, 35, of Mishawaka was arrested for level 4 felony possession of cocaine.

According to La Porte County Police, an officer noticed a license plate violation on the suspected vehicle and soon a traffic violation early Sunday in the area of U.S. 12 and Michigan Boulevard.
