A sniffer dog subsequently led officers to illegal drugs inside the 24-year-old's truck, and after searching it police found more drugs and scales.

Peck was arrested and officers confiscated a quantity of heroin, heroin laced with fentanyl, and crystal meth.

Peck was subsequently charged with possession of drugs with the intent to supply and obstructing an officer.
