Officers Cornelius and Kane of the APEX unit spot a car leaving an area known for drugs. After a few traffic violations the car is pulled over, and in talking to the driver and passengers, it becomes clear that the stories do not match all the passengers. Officer Cornelius suspects that they have drugs on them or in the car. A K9 unit is called and the dog alerts to possible drugs in the vehicle. Upon searching the vehicle only some residue is found along with a needle. One of the passengers tells Cornelius that the female sitting up front stashed the drugs in her pants. Cornelius convinces her to hand over the heroin, she finally gives in and reaches in her underwear and gives up the drugs. She is arrested for possession of heroin.

My partner and I walked up behind the house and there was a group of about 8-10 people gambling. A few people turned and saw my partner and I and yelled “12”, which was slang for Police. The group of people took off running and I was able to run after them and catch one.|
