Expired tags lead to drug arrest

Deputies arrested two on Big Pine Key Monday on drug charges after seeing expired tags on their utility trailer.

Deputy Danielle Malone and her K-9 Tracer arrived to back up Deputy Kohout. Tracer alerted on the vehicle indicating drugs were inside.

A search turned up 67 grams of marijuana, Oxycodone for which neither person in the car had a prescription and several items of drug paraphernalia.
