A traffic violation on Interstate 65 on Wednesday led to the arrest of Alejandro Martinez, 31, of Chicago after Indiana State Police reportedly found two pounds of methamphetamine in a booster seat in the 2006 white Ford F150.

Martinez was headed south on I-65 around 4:45 p.m. when Trooper Ryan Winters pulled him over, police said.

Neither Martinez nor the female passenger had valid driver’s licenses. Winters’ K-9, with assistance from Trooper Ben Rector’s K-9, assisted in searching the truck. The troopers disassembled the booster seat and found the two pounds of methamphetamine, Indiana State Police Sgt. Kim Riley said.

Martinez was arrested on suspicion of dealing in methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and never receiving an operator’s license. Police continue to investigate while Martinez is being held at Clinton County Jail.
