An anonymous tip led Warsaw Police to initiate a traffic stop in Warsaw Monday afternoon and turned up a significant amount of Heroin.
The traffic stop on a Pontiac Grand Prix happened at about 2 p.m. in the 300 block of South Detroit Street. Police say the two people in the vehicle, Meagan A. Martens, 24, and Douglas B. Jordan, 26, both of Wabash, were transporting Heroin to sell in both Kosciusko and Wabash counties.
During the traffic stop, a police canine alerted to the presence of illegal drugs. Narcotics officers then located 18 individual bags of Heroin, each weighing approximately 8 grams, on Martens body.
Narcotics officers took Martens into custody and booked her in the Kosciusko County Jail on a Class B felony charge of dealing in a Schedule I controlled substance and possession of a Schedule I controlled substance. She was being held with no bond.
Jordan was booked for Dealing in a Schedule I controlled substance, a Class B felony. He was also held with no bond.
Narcotics officers indicate that Martens and Jordan are boyfriend and girlfriend and were significant suppliers of Heroin in the Kosciusko and Wabash county areas.
