RUMFORD — A routine traffic stop led to the arrest of a New Hampshire man after a police K9 detected illegal drugs and a firearm in the vehicle, authorities said Thursday.

During the stop on Waldo Street Wednesday evening, Rumford Police Department’s drug detection canine, Niko, alerted officers to the presence of narcotics inside the car, which had expired New Hampshire registration plates.

The search that followed uncovered about 40 doses of methamphetamine and a loaded 9mm pistol.

Ryan Daley, 47, of Berlin, New Hampshire, faces charges of felony unlawful possession of methamphetamine and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.

After being booked at the Rumford Police Department, Daley was released on conditional bail.

He is scheduled to appear in the Oxford County Unified Criminal Docket Court in South Paris on July 8.
