PLAINDFIELD, Ind. – A K-9 officer helped the Plainfield Police Department locate a large amount of drugs at a motel Tuesday.

Officers say they were working interdiction at the Budget Inn on Gateway Drive when their K-9 partner Jocko indicated the presence of a narcotic in a room.

Police began a search of the room after the occupant gave consent, during which officers say they located the drugs, along with a rifle, cash and paraphernalia.

The occupant of the room, 39-year-old Stephen Hoop, was arrested without incident and all items were seized. Police say Hoop’s arrest also led to the arrest of Shane Wingler, 41.

“Plainfield PD’s K-9 program is a great tool we are utilizing to help keep the community safe,” said police in a press release.
