TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — A man was charged with drug trafficking following a traffic stop Tuesday in Twin Falls County.

Alan F. Akberdin, 37, was arraigned in Twin Falls County Court Thursday on possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

On Tuesday at about 6:47 p.m., Akberdin was arrested by a Twin Falls County deputy near 2700 East and Wildflower Lane. Court documents said the deputy pulled Akberdin over after he allegedly drove more than the posted speed limit. Police said the K9 later alerted on the vehicle and Akberdin admitted to possessing methamphetamine in his vehicle, according to court documents.

A Twin Falls County sheriff deputy and Idaho Fish and Game officer arrived to at the scene to assist.

The office initially issued a citation for a speeding violation. Akberdin asked the deputy what the reason was for having the K9 do a free air sniff on the car, and the officer said he didn’t need probable cause for the K9 to conduct a free air sniff and that he could use his dog on any traffic stop, according to court documents.

Akberdin asked if he did anything wrong, and the officer cited speeding, crossing driving lines, stopping in the center of the road and not being able to find information the officer requested, according to court documents.

After the K9 alerted for drugs on the car, police found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. Police also seized cash and some pills that were found.

Akberdin’s preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 12. He was booked at the Twin Falls County Jail and his bond was set at $50,000.
