Deputy Camron Barrieau initially pulled over the vehicle Grego was driving. Clark was traveling as a passenger in the car, along with two young children. After the initial stop, a Bangor Police Department Canine Unit was called in to search the vehicle and alerted authorities to the fact that there were drugs in the car.
