STEUBEN COUNTY, Ind. -- A Cassopolis man was arrested on drug charges following a traffic stop on the Indiana Toll Road Friday morning.

An Indiana State Police trooper stopped a GMC Yukon for a traffic violation near the 135 mile marker.

The trooper smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle, reports said.

The trooper requested assistance from the Steuben County Sheriff's Department and a deputy responded to the scene.

A search of the vehicle yielded two glass jars containing half an ounce of suspected marijuana, a container with approximately one gram of suspected cocaine, a container with several pills and a small bag of suspected psilocybin mushrooms, police said.

The driver, 34-year-old Kondwani Bethea, was taken into custody on preliminary charges of possession of marijuana, possession of cocaine, and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.
