Two Nebraskans and an Illinoisan face drug trafficking charges after state troopers arrested them in Cadiz, according to the Kentucky State Police.

While Trooper T.J. Williams, who observed indicators of criminal activity in the car, was issuing a citation to the driver - Marcos Meza-Carmona, 27, of Omaha, Neb. - Trooper Brad Ramsey and his K9 partner, Oscar, arrived.

The dog indicated the potential presence of drugs in the vehicle. A search was conducted, and the troopers found 2.2 pounds of methamphetamine, 5 grams of marijuana and $423.

According to the police report, Meza-Carmona tried to run, but troopers captured him after a short pursuit.

Meza-Carmona was charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense, for more than 2 grams of meth as were passengers Raul T. Shaec, 21, also of Omaha,, and Carmona Maza, 24, of Palatine, Ill.

Meza-Carmona was also charged with second-degree fleeing and evading police on foot; failure to wear a seat belt and driving without an operator's license. Shaec was charged with possession of marijuana.

Meza-Carmona, Shaec and Maza were jailed in Hopkinsville. Troopers were assisted by Cadiz police.
