WARSAW, Ind. (WANE)  Two people who police consider to be significant suppliers of heroin in northeast Indiana were arrested by Warsaw police Monday afternoon.

According to a press release issued by the Warsaw Police Department, officers stopped a Pontiac Grand Prix in the 300 block of South Detroit Street at around 2 pm after getting a tip that the occupants had heroin that they planned to sell in Wabash and Kosciusko counties.

A police canine was called in and the animal alerted officers to 18 individual bags of heroin weighing about eight grams.  The drugs were found on Meagan A. Martens, one of the occupants of the Pontiac.

Martens was booked into the Kosciusko County jail on a felony charge of dealing heroin and having possession of a controlled substance.

Her boyfriend, Douglas B. Jordan was the other person in the car.  He was arrested on a felony charge of dealing a controlled substance.

Both were being held without bond.
