After responding to a disturbance on River Street in the Central Village Section of Plainfield, Officers made contact with Francis who initially tried to flee into the residence but failed. Through investigation the Officer became suspicious that Francis was in possession of narcotics.
The Plainfield Officer deployed his K-9 Vail, a male yellow Labrador trained in narcotics detection who was used to sniff Francis where K-9 Vail alerted to the presence of narcotics. A search of Francis was conducted where he was found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia. Francis then attempted to destroy the evidence but failed.
