The Crawford County Sheriff’s Department K-9 Unit was patrolling the village of Gays Mills Nov. 18, when he observed a vehicle with false license plates. The deputy initiated a traffic stop at De La Mater Road and Highway 131. The driver was identified as Thomas Murphy, 31, of De Soto. Murphy was discovered to be on active probation for possession with intent to deliver marijuana. In speaking with Murphy, the deputy observed, in plain view, marijuana inside the vehicle, according to the sheriff’s department report.

K-9 Breck conducted an open, free air sniff of the vehicle and alerted to the presence of one or more controlled substances. Murphy was then found to be in possession of numerous grams of marijuana, two opiate medications for which he did not have a valid prescription for, a digital scale and numerous items of drug paraphernalia, the report said.

Murphy was arrested for a probation violation, possession with intent to deliver marijuana, operating with a restricted controlled substance-second offense and possession of drug paraphernalia.
