Late on the evening of Monday, April 29, the Culver City Police Department conducted a traffic stop which led to the arrest of a suspect with narcotics and a loaded firearm.

“Late last night a Culver City Police Officer stopped a car on Duquesne Avenue and Lucerne Avenue for multiple vehicle code violations,” reads a CCPD statement. “The driver was found in possession of multiple narcotics. A loaded firearm and over 300 pills believed to be fentanyl were also found in the vehicle.”

The police ended the statement with some valuable public information.

“Overdose deaths caused by fentanyl have plagued neighborhoods nationwide.”

Just a couple of nights later, on the evening of Wednesday, May 1, another bust took place thanks to police dog K9 Storm.

“While you were sleeping last night our K9 Unit was busy working,” the police said. “K9 Storm responded to assist with a traffic stop that led to the discovery of approximately 140 pounds of methamphetamine and the arrest of the driver.”
