Pederson “would not make eye contact with deputies and appeared extremely nervous” so authorities asked for a K-9 to assist, according to authorities. The K-9 alerted officials to the presence of narcotics.

In his car was 66 pounds of a liquid substance in jugs that tested positive for methamphetamine, six bricks of a white powdery substance that tested positive for cocaine, 2.2 pounds worth of a substance that tested positive for MDMA and 1,000 packages of candy-infused THC products, according to the sheriff’s office, who said the estimated street value was $3,696,720.
