South Point, Ohio, police said a man and a woman face multiple charges after heroin was found in their vehicle during a traffic stop.
Amanda L. Williams and Jason Burgess were arrested after their vehicle was stopped about 10 a.m. Tuesday near Grandview Avenue along U.S. 52, according to a news release from police.
An officer said he stopped a vehicle after he saw it drive off the right side of the roadway several times. After speaking to the driver, police said, the officer determined she had no license and was on probation in Circleville for possession of crack along with a pending court case in Pike County relating to meth. A check of the vehicle and passengers resulted in 1 gram of heroin being located along with a syringe, police said.
Police said the charges included possession of drug abuse instruments and possession of heroin.
Williams and Burgess were taken to the Lawrence County Jail, where they will await arraignment Friday in the Lawrence County Municipal Court. South Point Police were assisted by the Ohio Highway Patrol.
