Three people were arrested on drug charges following a traffic stop in Bourbon County Friday.
The Paris Police Department say they observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on Lexington Road near Paris. After making a traffic stop, the field investigation led to the officer locating a small amount of marijuana in the vehicle. While interviewing the passengers a gun, approximately $8,000 in cash and other prescription pills were also found.
One of the passengers stated he had ingested a large quantity of prescription medication. He was immediately taken to the hospital. At the hospital, a baggie containing approximately 49 oxycodone was retrieved from the individual.
Information gained during interviews led to a subsequent search warrant being issued for another location. During the search warrant, approximately four ounces of heroin and more than $2,000 cash were found.
Arrested were Aniema Udousoro and Douglas Martin, both of Detroit, as well as Jessica Cavezza of Carlisle. All three were charged with first-degree conspiracy to traffic in controlled substance, and both Udousoro and Martin were also charged with tampering with physical evidence.
All the suspects are being held in the Bourbon County Detention Center.
