A Wisconsin man ended up in jail on marijuana and heroin charges following a traffic stop by an Indiana State Trooper on the Indiana Toll Road in LaGrange County.

Trooper Andrew Baldwin stopped a vehicle for a traffic infraction on the Indiana Toll Road, near the 117 mile marker westbound on Thursday night at around 10 p.m.

As Baldwin spoke to the driver from the passenger side of the vehicle, he purportedly smelled marijuana and could see small pieces of marijuana on the front seat passenger’s clothing. After conducting a search, Troppers found approximately 75 grams of suspected marijuana in glass jars as well as approximately 18 grams of suspected heroin.

The front seat passenger, Cory McCauley, age 31 of Bristol, WI, was arrested on preliminary charges of Possession Of A Narcotic Drug, Level-4 Felony, Possession Of Marijuana, B-Misdemeanor, and Possession Of Paraphernalia, C-Misdemeanor.

McCauley was taken to the LaGrange County Jail.

Baldwin was assisted by Trooper Zarek Finley, Trooper Matthew Henson, Trooper Jathan Rose, and Trooper Daniel Burkey.
