Two California men were arrested in Elkhart County Saturday on drug and weapon charges. According to Indiana State police, a state trooper made a routine traffic stop on a vehicle in the eastbound lanes of the Indiana Toll Road near the 100 mile marker in Elkhart County. During the stop, the trooper reportedly became suspicious of the two individuals in the car and a K9 unit was called to conduct an open-air search on the vehicle.

A search of the vehicle uncovered several vacuum-sealed packages of marijuana totaling approximately 10 pounds hidden under clothing in luggage found in the vehicle. Troopers also discovered a loaded 9mm handgun in the passenger compartment and several hundred dollars in cash.

Arrested were the driver, Reader Lek, 30, and Heng Hov, 33, both of Oakland City, Calif., on charges of possession of a handgun without a license and possession of marijuana. They were booked into the county jail.
