GRAND FORKS — A traffic stop turned into a drug bust as University of North Dakota police found meth during a traffic stop on campus.

Police say they stopped a car on University Avenue around 2:45 a.m. on New Year's Day.

34-year-old Derrick Laducer and 46-year-old Ronald Keplin were in the car.

Police say a drug sniffing dog detected methamphetamine.

That's when police say they found small bags full of a white substance.

"Short time later decided to run his canine partner around the vehicle and the canine alerted to the vehicle. So they subsequently did a search and then found some syringes," said Lt. Danny Weigel, UND Police Department.

UND Police say the men are not UND students.

Charges have yet to be filed, but one of the men is facing misdemeanor charges for possession of drug paraphernalia.
