Two out-of-state travelers were arrested near Highway 50 East and Stewart Street Thursday morning on suspicion of drug-related activities.

Deputies arrested Charles Hangge, 19, and Robert Luepker, 24, both of St. Louis, Mo., after deputies were given consent to search Hangge’s car during a routine traffic stop.

Deputies reportedly found a bag containing black tar heroine belonging to Luepker and a marijuana cigarette belonging to Hangge.

Both men were also charged with possession of paraphernalia and possession of a hypodermic device for what deputies believe was a bag containing close to 100 syringes and several tourniquets.

Bail was set at $2,500 each.
