A Massachusetts state trooper wasn't barking up the wrong tree, when he decided to check out a bag of dog food.

State police report a trooper noticed a plastic bag inside a sack of kibble.

Authorities say that plastic bag contained about 20 grams of crack cocaine.

The dog food was on the back seat of a car that had stopped on a ramp connecting the Massachusetts Turnpike and I-290.

Police busted brothers William and Joseph Martin on drug dealing charges.

Troopers add they made arrangements to care for the dog that was in the car, too.
