What started as a routine traffic stop on the toll road ended with two men behind bars.
On Saturday, police became suspicious of two California men, Reader Lek, 30, and Heng Hov, 33, after talking with them during a traffic stop. A K-9 unit was called to the scene near the 100 mile marker in Elkhart County.
During a search, police found several vacuum-sealed packages of marijuana hidden under clothing. In all, 10 lbs. of marijuana was found.
Lek and Hov are from Oakland, California. They are facing charges of felony dealing marijuana and possessing a handgun without a permit.
