Breck traffic stop leads to drug bust

BRECKENRIDGE – A routine traffic stop early Monday morning led police officers to discover a large cache of drugs.

A Breckenridge Police Officer stopped the driver of a vehicle on Ski HIll Road after observing the car veer over the center line.

The officer arrested Daniel Flynn, 26, of Paxton, Mass., on suspicion of driving under the influence.

While searching Flynn, the officer found various controlled substances and called for assistance. A Dillon police officer and K-9 unit responded and searched Flynn’s car.

The dog indicated more drugs were in a backpack in the car.

The officers found 9 ounces of marijuana, 2.6 grams of cocaine, .90 grams of hashish, more than 60 doses of LSD, 30 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, six ecstasy pills and 58 pieces of chocolate believed to be laced with psilocybin mushrooms.

Police reported Flynn later blew a .134 breath-alcohol content at the jail. He was charged with six felony counts, including possession and intent to sell controlled substances, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving under the influence. Flynn remains in the Summit County Jail without bond.
