A trooper stopped a Chrysler 300 on I-74 near the 160 mile marker in Dearborn County for a minor traffic violation at around 4:45 p.m. During the stop, the trooper became suspicious of criminal activity and walked his K-9 partner, Jinx, around the vehicle.

Jinx indicated there may be drugs in the vehicle. A subsequent search allegedly turned up marijuana, cocaine, and various items of paraphernalia.

The driver, Verlando U. Wolfork, 41, of Indianapolis was taken into custody without incident.

Wolfork is currently held in jail at the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center charged with Possession of Cocaine-Over Three Grams (Class C Felony), Possession of Marijuana-Less than 30 grams (Class A Misdemeanor), and Possession of Paraphernalia (Class A Misdemeanor).
