Indiana State Police pulled over a speeding driver and found drugs stashed near the spare tire.

Officials say the Jeep was going 105 miles per hour on I-64 through Warrick County.  After the stop, a police K9 alerted them to the presence of drugs.  A pound of pot was found wrapped in shrink wrap and dryer sheets.

Authorities arrested passengers 30-year-old Talisha Hubbard of Covington, KY and 26-year-old Nathaniel Stillwell of Cincinnati.  Troopers say the marijuana belonged to Stillwell. A small amount of marijuana was also located inside Hubbard's pants.

They two were charged with possession and were taken to the Warrick County Detention Center.

The driver was ticketed for speeding and then released.
