An OSP narcotics detection canine was brought in to assist.

The dog alerted officers to the presence of a dug odor in the vehicle. After a search was done, 36 pounds of suspected methamphetamine and 2 pounds of suspected heroin were found. According to the Oregon State Police Facebook post:

The driver identified as Anabel Torres (38), of Sunnyside, Washington, and the passenger identified as Audel Torres Perez, (38), of Sunnyside, Washington, were interviewed and released pending referred charges.

Naturally, people want to know why the two were released.

I want to know, as well. It'll be interesting to see how this all unfolds. We'll keep you posted as more details become available. Nonetheless, it was a GREAT job by everyone involved.
