ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A Rockford man is in jail after police find almost six pounds of meth in his vehicle during a routine traffic stop.

Police say a K-9 unit followed a vehicle Tuesday while observing the driver making a traffic violation. While checking the license plate, a confirmation came back that the plates were suspended for a mandatory insurance violation. It also revealed the registered owner, 22-year-old Eduardo Ramirez, had a suspended driver's license.

During the traffic stop, the officer had his canine partner sniff the exterior of Ramirez's vehicle. Inside the vehicle, the officer found several clear bags that tested positive for most likely methamphetamine.

Ramirez is charged with failure to signal when required, operation of a motor vehicle when registration is suspended for mandatory insurance violation, driving while license suspended, possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine.

Since Ramirez is charged with a felony, his bond must be set by a judge.
