Officers from the Arkansas Highway Police (AHP) Division of the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) uncovered a significant shipment of illegal drugs in a vehicle along Interstate 40, according to AHP Chief Ron Burks.
As a result of a traffic stop on Tuesday afternoon in Crawford County, officers discovered the drugs in the bed of a pickup truck.
The occupants of the truck are identified as Jason Price, 42, and John Magnus, 48, both of Albuquerque, New Mexico. They were reportedly traveling from New Mexico to Tennessee.
Both were arrested for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and were being held at the Crawford County Detention Center. They appeared in court this morning where their bond was set at $15,000 each.
