The driver was issued two citations and the passenger was taken into custody following a traffic stop in downtown Rising Sun on January 12. Police Chief Chip Peterson reported that Officer George Vanaskey was on patrol shortly before 6 p.m. on that date when he saw a Chevy S10 pick up in the parking lot of Johnston's Liquors in the 300 block of East Main Street.
Vanaskey was assisted by Officers Daniel Stickney and Paul Wilkinson.
"I'm ecstatic," said Chief Peterson. "That's 324 packets of heroin off the street."
