A 52-year-old Laredo man was arrested on drug charges in Fayette County, Texas after heroin was discovered in a car battery during a traffic stop.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office said on Friday, Sgt. Randy Thumann and K9 partner Kolt pulled over a Nissan Altima on Interstate 10 just after 3 p.m. for a traffic violation. After talking with the driver, Thumann suspected the vehicle was carrying illegal drugs.

Thumann was given permission to investigate the car. Kolt swept the outside of the car and eventually alerted Thumann to the potential presence of drugs in a car battery on the passenger floor board.

About seven kilos or over 15 pounds of brown heroin (estimated street value $670,000) was discovered in the battery, the sheriff’s office said.

Jesus Enriquez was arrested on felony drug possession charges and had been taken to the Dan R. Beck Justice Center.
