A motor vehicle stop on Sweetbriar Road last week resulted in the arrest of a 30-year-old Wildwood Crest man.

Wildwood Crest K-9 officer Tyler Lavendar was conducting a routine traffic stop when he became suspicious of the occupants.

That suspicion led the officer to deploy K-9 Quest to do an exterior sniff of the vehicle.
