Indiana State Police say a traffic stop turned into a drug arrest on Interstate 65 in Jackson County.

Trooper Randel Miller stopped a southbound vehicle just north of Seymour at about 4 p.m. yesterday for a traffic infraction, according to police reports. After having his police dog, Jinx, walk around the vehicle, the dog alerted to the smell of drugs inside the vehicle.

A search of the vehicle allegedly revealed half a gram of crack cocaine and 60 grams of marijuana.

19-year-old Trevone D. Sneed of Hanover was arrested on preliminary charge of possession of cocaine and marijuana, maintaining a common nuisance and driving without ever being licensed.
