A recent traffic stop in Michigan's St. Clair County led to $125,000 worth of methamphetamine — the largest bust in a drug task force's history, sheriff's officials announced Thursday.

A road patrol deputy who pulled over a car on Interstate 69 near Kinney Road in Riley Township about 1:30 p.m. Nov. 2 became suspicious about possible narcotics and asked the sheriff’s K-9 unit to respond, investigators said in a statement.  

The dog alerted officers to narcotics, and the county drug task force found the meth as well as marijuana and $1,200 in cash during a search, according to the release.

The driver, a 38-year-old man from Port Huron, was arrested at the scene.  

He is expected to face charges including possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine and marijuana, authorities said Thursday.
