(ABC 6 News) -- Members of the Rochester Police Department's Criminal Interdiction Unit (CIU) were looking for a man they'd been investigating for months. Interim Chief John Sherwin said the CIU team has been working on a case involving 35-year-old Cory Dozark since March. 

Around 4 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10, Sherwin said CIU officers saw Dozark coming out of a home carrying a small bag, and then getting into a vehicle driven by another man.

The CIU team followed the car and made a traffic stop. Officers said they saw methamphetamine on the driver door. 

Officers searched the car and said they found about six to seven grams of meth inside the bag they saw Dozark carrying as well as a scale and $500 in cash. Dozark was arrested, and then once he was thoroughly searched at the Law Enforcement Center, authorities say they found 20 more grams of meth on him. 

The driver, 36-year-old Anthony Anderson is facing a gross misdemeanor charge of 5th-degree possession of a controlled substance for the small amount of meth found in the car. 

Dozark is facing a 1st-degree felony sales charge for the drugs found in the bag and on his person.
