Women arrested for possession of cocaine
Two women were arrested after police witnessed the women allegedly using cocaine in the back seat of a vehicle early Sunday morning.
Officers from the Elkhart Police Department were conducting an area check at 2401 Middlebury St, near The Arena, at approximately 2:11 a.m.
During this time, officers say they witnessed a subject in the rear seat of a vehicle holding a tray of what appeared to be cocaine.

A small amount of the drug was also recovered at the scene.
