Mekal Williams of Arlington and Devante Thomas of Alexandria, La., were arrested after a traffic stop on Highway 59 in New Caney, according to Montgomery County Constable Precinct 4.

A deputy says he smelled marijuana on the car, but the men insisted there were no other drugs in the vehicle.


That’s when a drug-sniffing dog named Dino got in on the action and alerted the cop that something was not on the up and up.

Under the hood, the deputy found approximately 750 grams of Xanax pills.
