LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY)- Three men from Texas were arrested Thursday night after a traffic stop led to a drug raid.

At about 5:30 p.m., Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Narcotics Agents and SWAT Team members executed a traffic stop with the assistance of the Sheriff’s K-9 Unit. Because this is an ongoing investigation, authorities have not specified where in the parish the stop occurred.  

A K-9 search of the vehicle resulted in a positive alert for the presence of illegal narcotics, the department said.
