Three people were arrested in Whitley County after officers said a routine traffic stop led to $500 worth of marijuana and nearly $200 worth of pills.

Colan Harrell, the Whitley County Sheriff, said officers stopped a car on Highway 92 East, where the driver, Kathy Price, 45, failed a field sobriety test. Harrel said Price admitted to taking hydrocodone and Percocet.

Two passengers were also arrested on drug possession charges. Lester Watson, 36, and Ronnie Croley, 49, were booked at the Whitley County Detention Center.

The Sheriff said the keen nose of a K-9 netted a total of 15 hydrocodone pills, 4 Percocet pills, and a quarter-pound of marijuana.
