Maverick presents his findings

Maverick conducted an “open-air sniff” of the vehicle and “alerted the officer to the presence of narcotics within the vehicle.”

Sure enough, inside the vehicle, the officers discovered a pound of cocaine packaged for sales.

29-year-old Joshymar Estrada was arrested for “various drug violations” and had a bail set of $100,000.

The LBPD notes that Maverick was ” purchased by a generous donation from a member of our community. He has proven to be an excellent resource for Los Banos.”
