Broken Arrow police arrested an Arkansas resident at around 3:30 a.m. Saturday after allegedly finding 585 grams of methamphetamine in his vehicle.

The vehicle was originally stopped by police because it failed to signal a right turn when leaving the Luxury Inn at 1401 N. Elm Place in Broken Arrow.

The officer was reportedly about to give the suspect, Michael McBirney, 49, a verbal warning for a turn signal violation when another officer's canine partner indicated the presence of drugs within the vehicle.

The two officers searched the vehicle and reportedly found 585 grams of methamphetamine separated between six packages. Police also found 38 grams of marijuana and a glass methamphetamine smoking pipe, the report states.

During the arrest, the officer allegedly found a 3.6 grams of meth in McBirney's boot and a marijuana smoking pipe in his pocket.

McBirney was booked on a complaint of aggravated trafficking of methamphetamine. He is being held on $26,500 bond.
