Two men were arrested on drug charges after a Wednesday traffic stop in Jackson County resulted in the discovery of a large amount of suspected methamphetamine.
The incident began at approximately 10:30 a.m. when an Indiana State Police Trooper conducted a traffic stop on northbound I-65 near the 39 mile marker, just north of Crothersville. During the stop, police became suspicious that criminal activity was taking place. ISP police dog Jinx conducted a sweep of the exterior of the vehicle and alerted to the odor of illegal drugs coming from the vehicle. A search of the vehicle allegedly uncovered a plastic bag containing more than one pound of suspected crystal methamphetamine.
The driver of the vehicle, 37-year-old Zachary D. Williams, of Lafayette, reportedly gave police a fake name. A passenger, 39-year-old Mark A. Sneed, of Louisville, was also found to be in possession of suspected marijuana.
Williams was arrested on charges of Dealing Methamphetamine, Possession of Methamphetamine, False Informing and Identity Theft. Sneed was charged with Dealing Methamphetamine, Possession of Methamphetamine, and Possession of Marijuana.
