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

State police stopped a vehicle traveling east on Interstate 24 at 11:17 a.m. Thursday for a traffic violation.

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.
