Mitchell says the arrests came as a result of a routine traffic stop along Hwy. 157 in Lawrence County.

A drug dog was called in and indicated there were drugs located in the car. The large cache of heroin (17 grams) was found in the passenger and driver door panels. A smaller amount of meth (4 grams) was found, along with drug paraphernalia.

According to Michell, Riley, who was driving the vehicle, refused to give consent to search the automobile. Agents then obtained a search warrant to search for drugs.
