(SEYMOUR) - A traffic stop Wednesday by Indiana State Police led to the discovery of heroin and drug paraphernalia.

The investigation began when Trooper Randel Miller stopped a Chevrolet Malibu on I-65 southbound, just north of the Seymour exit, for a traffic violation.

During the traffic stop, Trp. Miller observed indicators of criminal activity and K-9 Jinx made a positive alert to the odor of an illegal substance coming from the vehicle.

During a search of the vehicle, troopers found a syringe and other items of drug paraphernalia.

The driver of the vehicle, 25-year-old Clinton Johnson and passenger, 24-year-old Sara Biggs, both of Seymour, were arrested on various charges.

While at the jail, jail officers discovered that Biggs was concealing two bags of suspected heroin on her person.

Trp. Miller also learned that Johnson had originally provided a false name during the traffic stop. Both

Johnson and Biggs are facing felony charges of possession of heroin and possession of syringe along with a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Johnson was additionally arrested on charges of identity theft, false informing, and driving while his driver's license was suspended. Both were incarcerated in the Jackson County Jail.

These arrests come after numerous heroin drug overdoses that occurred in the Seymour area on Tuesday evening. The Indiana State Police are committed to patrolling Indiana roadways and preventing dangerous drugs from entering the Indiana communities they serve.

Anyone with information on illegal drug activity is encouraged to contact the Indiana State Police-Versailles Post at (812)689-5000 or a local law enforcement agency.
