Two Bartholomew County residents were arrested on drug charges in Johnson County after a traffic stop.

A Johnson County deputy pulled over the vehicle on U.S. 31 near Franklin at about 12:40 this morning because the driver did not use a turn signal, according to police reports.

Both of the car’s occupants had a hard time finding the car’s registration and a police dog alerted to the smell of drugs inside the vehicle.

A search of the vehicle revealed oxycodone, foil packs containing what appeared to be heroin and drug paraphernalia, according to the police report.
