A traffic stop by an observant police officer resulted in a room search and a Michigan couple busted for drugs.
Saturday evening, a Richmond Police officer noticed a car being driven by a person known to have a suspended drivers license. During the traffic stop, a search of the vehicle was conducted and officers uncovered two sets of scales, three wrapped packs of suspected heroin and two Oxycodone pills.
Two passengers in the vehicle identified as Keiarra Carter, 21, and her boyfriend Dandrea Long, 26, both of Michigan, were found in possession of $1,395 in cash. The couple told police they were staying with the driver at his Clay Drive home. Officers then conducted a search of the couple’s room where they found a sock hidden in a floor vent. The sock allegedly contained 157 grams of suspected heroin.
The two were arrested and both face charges of tampering with physical evidence, first-degree aggravated trafficking in a controlled substance (more than or equal to 100 grams of heroin) and first-degree possession of a controlled substance.
Both remain lodged at the Madison County Detention Center.
