ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - A Benton County Sheriff's K-9 search of a Royalton man's vehicle during a traffic stop allegedly turned up brass knuckles with a knife blade attached, drugs and paraphernalia.

The sheriff's office says they pulled over a vehicle driven by 55-year-old Jason Wolf on 105th Street NW and NE River Road in Watab Township at 10:45 Wednesday night.

While speaking with Wolf and his passenger, the deputy smelled a very strong odor of perfume or cologne coming from the vehicle and found a small butane torch at the feet of the woman sitting in the passenger seat.

Deputies say Wolf's passenger, who was later identified as 26-year-old Kendra Ann Englehart, gave a false name.

Benton County K-9 Ragnar was called in on suspicion of controlled substances.

During the search deputies say they found brass knuckles with a knife blade attached, several grams of suspected methamphetamine and marijuana, drug paraphernalia and two scales.

Englehart's identification was also found in the vehicle and she admitted to originally giving the deputies her sister's name.

Law enforcement says the evidence found indicated Englehart was in possession of the items found in the vehicle.

She was arrested on 5th degree drug charges, possession of a dangerous weapon, giving a false name and an outstanding 5th degree drug warrant.

Wolf was cited for driving with a suspended license.
