WHITLEY COUNTY, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - A traffic stop for a moving violation by an Indiana State Trooper led to the discovery of heroin, marijuana and other controlled substances Tuesday afternoon.
The discovery resulted in the arrest of two men from Ohio and one from Illinois.
According to officials, the three men were pulled over at a traffic stop on U.S. 30, just outside of Columbia City. Sources say the officer grew suspicious of the driver, Michael D. Yoha, 33, and his two male passengers when they provided false information related to their true identities.
Officials say the investigation lead to the discovery of more than 50 grams of heroin, an unknown quantity of marijuana and numerous narcotic pills. One of the passengers also had federal arrest warrants issued for him for trafficking heroin. All three men were taken into custody without incident and transported to the Whitley County Jail.
The Whitley County Sheriff Department assisted the troopers at the location of the traffic stop.
