Two arrested after traffic stop on I-65

A Whiteland woman and an Indianapolis man were arrested after a traffic stop on Interstate 65.

At 1 a.m. Monday, Indiana State Police arrested Bre Anna D. Williams, 22, Whiteland, on charges of visiting a common nuisance, dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia, possession of a legend drug and possession of marijuana.

Richard J. Duffy, 29, Indianapolis, was arrested on charges of dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, driving while suspended, visiting a common nuisance, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia and trafficking with an inmate.

A state trooper stopped the vehicle on I-65 near Columbus because a check of the license plate showed Duffy had a suspended license, according to a news release from Indiana State Police.

A police dog was called to check for drugs inside the vehicle. Officers found marijuana, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle, the release said. Duffy also had a warrant for his arrest from Marion County.

Duffy and Williams both were arrested and taken to the Bartholomew County jail, the release said.

Williams, 239 Shelton Place, was held on $192,000 bond.

Duffy, 277 Bellview Place, A, was held without bond. Police found Duffy had marijuana on him when he was being booked into the jail.
