During the afternoon hours of March 8th, Indiana State Police Sergeants Greg Day and Rusty Garrison conducted a traffic stop in rural Lawrence County on a Ford Edge passenger car after Sgt. Day recognized the driver as Darin S. Rollman, 44 of Bedford.

Sgt. Day knew Rollman was wanted on an active felony arrest warrant through Lawrence County and then found Juston D. Sears, 41 of Bedford to be a passenger in the vehicle.

During the course of the stop, hypodermic syringes and drug paraphernalia was discovered in plain view.

Rollman was found to have approximately 1 gram of heroin and 2 morphine pills on his person. He also possessed hypodermic syringes and drug paraphernalia in his vehicle.

Sears was found to have syringes and drug paraphernalia in the vehicle as well. He also had approximately 2 grams of heroin, 1 gram of methamphetamine, and 4 morphine pills on his person.

The heroin was packaged in a manner consistent with dealing the drug. Other evidence discovered during the stop led officers to establish probable cause that Sears was dealing the heroin.
