A couple described as significant suppliers of heroin by police in Kosciusko and Wabash counties were arrested Monday.
Meagan Martens, 24, and her boyfriend, 26-year-old Douglas B. Jordan, both of Wabash, were taken into custody after a traffic stop by Warsaw police.
An anonymous tip came to police that the couple would be driving a Pontiac Grand Prix and they were transporting heroin in the car.
Officers pulled the car over at 2 p.m. in the 300 block of South Detroit Street in Warsaw.
A police dog alerted officers to the presence of illegal drugs, and police recovered 18 bags of heroin – each weighing about eight grams – from Martens’ body, police said.
Martens was charged with dealing a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance.
She’s being held in Kosciusko County Jail without bail.
Jordan was booked into jail for dealing a controlled substance and is also being held without bail.
The Wabash County Drug Task Force and the Kosciusko County Prosecuting Attorney’s office helped in the investigation, police said.
Warsaw Police ask anyone who knows about drug activity in the community to leave tips at 574-372-9540.
