Two people were arrested Wednesday after a 1:50 p.m. traffic stop at High Point Village shopping center.
Niesha Mundy, 27, of Bellefontaine, was arrested on two warrant for trafficking in crack cocaine while the driver, Mateo J. Rosales, 31, of Bellefontaine, was lodged on a parole violation.
The traffic stop resulted for an investigation by the Logan County Joint Drug Task Force and it continues.
Marijuana and $1,000 were seized from the maroon Chevrolet Impala driven by the male defendant.
A canine unit from the Bellefontaine Police Department conducted a sweep of the four-door sedan and the dog indicated it detected drugs prior to a search of the vehicle.
A trooper of the Marysville Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol assisted the task force in the stop.
Both defendants were lodged in the Logan County Jail.
