A Fullerton police dog sniffed out 20 kilos of cocaine, valued at $1 million, in a car during a traffic stop, leading to the arrest of its driver, authorities said Wednesday.

Alfonso Gutierrez-Cisneros, 27, of Pacoima was arrested Tuesday night after Fullerton Police Officer Jonathon Miller stopped Gutierrez-Cisneros near Magnolia and Orangethorpe avenues. Discovering that Gutierrrez-Cisneros was on probation for narcotics violations, Miller had his dog, Mueller, search the Chevy Monte Carlo.

The dog discovered the cocaine in packets in a box in the trunk, police said.

Mueller was donated to the department in December. Officials said this was his first major find.
