During the course of the traffic stop, the trooper observed criminal indicators. Putnam County Sheriff’s K-9 was called for assistance. A positive K-9 alert to the odor of illegal drugs led to a search of the vehicle.

It was discovered through a criminal history search that Oldfield was a convicted felon and during the search of the vehicle troopers discovered he was in possession of a .40 caliber firearm.
