The Gibson County Sheriff's Office says it was around 2:00 a.m. on Friday morning that Sgt. John Fischer stopped a 2020 Toyota Camry for violating the left lane law on I-64.
Sgt. Fischer identified the driver of the vehicle as 43-year-old Jeffery Vincent and a passenger of the vehicle as 36-year-old Heather E. Rice, both of Edinburgh, Indiana.
After speaking to both Vincent and Rice individually, Sgt. Fischer developed reasonable suspicion to contact the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office to assist on the scene with a K9 unit.
According to GCSO, a Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Deputy arrived with a K9, which alerted to the presence of narcotics within the vehicle.
A search of the vehicle was performed, and according to the sheriff's office, 6.5 lbs of raw Marijuana and 2.2 lbs of edibles containing THC were found, in addition to methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
Both suspects were arrested and taken to the Gibson County Jail.
Vincent was charged with Dealing in Marijuana with a prior conviction, Dealing in Salvia /Hashish over 300 grams (Level 5 Felony), Possession of Methamphetamines, and Possession of Paraphernalia.
Rice was charged with Dealing in Marijuana, Possession of Methamphetamines, and Possession of Paraphernalia.
GCSO says both individuals have since been released from the jail, each on a $750 bond.
