At approximately 1:45 p.m., a DPS Trooper stopped a 2007 Ford Expedition traveling east on I-40 near Conway, for a traffic violation. The Trooper then discovered black tape-wrapped bundles of heroin and cocaine inside the vehicle.

DPS Special Agents and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agents were contacted and assisted with the investigation. DEA Special agents adopted the case.

The driver – Annette Graves, 36, of Riviera Beach, Florida – was released to DEA Special Agents.

The Drugs were allegedly being transported from Anaheim, California to Columbus, Ohio.
