Drug agents were able to issue a search warrant after a traffic stop on Highway 20 at Railroad Street on Tuesday.

“We continue to work with our regional partners to seek out the flow of illegal narcotics which continue to destroy lives, families and communities. Unfortunately, we have recently seen an increase in the presence of cocaine and crack cocaine often laced with fentanyl, posing a greater risk of overdose or death,” Sheriff Ron Puckett said in a statement.
