Tuesday evening, around 6 P.M., an Indiana State Trooper stopped the driver of a 2011 Dodge Ram pickup truck on I-64 for driving 84 mph. 

While he was talking to the driver and passenger he became suspicious of criminal activity and allowed his canine, Rydr to begin to "investigate." 

While walking around the pickup truck, Rydr alerted to an odor of narcotics in the bed of the truck. 

The Trooper searched a bag located in the bed and found three vacuum sealed plastic bags containing over 200 grams of marijuana. 

Further investigation revealed the bag belonged to the passenger, 43-year-old Connie Ward of Long Beach, CA.  Ward was taken to the Posey County Jail where she is currently being held on bond.  The driver was not arrested.
