Police in Tracy recently arrested two individuals in connection with the alleged discovery of a large amount of narcotics during a vehicle stop.

In a press release, police reported that they had stopped a vehicle near 11th Street and Parker Ave. on the afternoon of Tuesday, June 25. A K9 unit brought in for assistance reportedly alerted to the presence of narcotics in the vehicle.

Officers searched the vehicle and discovered two pounds of suspected heroin, police said.

The driver of the vehicle, whom police identified as Jose Cota Lugo, 53, was taken into custody.
