A Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office K-9 team was once again responsible for a nice drug bust in Crandall. At approximately 9:45 p.m. on May 6, 2012, the K-9 deputy made a traffic stop in Crandall on a 1996 silver Honda Accord. The traffic stop led to the arrest of Randall Lee Laughlin, 30, of Garland, Texas.

After making the traffic stop, the K-9 deputy became suspicious about what might be hidden in the vehicle. He asked Laughlin if he could search the vehicle and Laughlin gave the deputy permission to conduct the search. The deputy and his four-legged partner conducted a search of the suspect’s car and located two red baggies inside a Coke can. Inside the red baggies appeared to be crystal methamphetamine.

Suspect Laughlin was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance under one gram. He was transported to the Kaufman County Law Enforcement Center and his bond was set at $100,000.00.
