Earlier this week a Jackson, Michigan man was arrested for dealing heroin after a traffic stop in Jackson County.

The investigation began when Senior Trooper Randel Miller conducted a traffic stop on a 2021 Kia passenger car traveling southbound on I-65 just north of Seymour, Indiana.

While speaking to the driver, S/Trp. Miller became suspicious that criminal activity was taking place. 

A subsequent search of the vehicle and driver resulted in approximately 90 grams of heroin and marijuana being located and seized.

The driver, Jamaal Hunt, 38, Michigan was arrested for Dealing a Narcotic Drug over 28 grams, Level 2 Felony, Possession of a Narcotic Drug over 28 grams, Level 3 Felony, and Possession of Marijuana, Class C Misdemeanor.

Hunt was transported to the Jackson County Jail where he was being held pending an initial appearance in the Jackson County Circuit Court. 

S/Trp. Miller was assisted at the scene by Master Trooper Jason Hankins, Indiana State Police-Versailles.

The investigation determined that the heroin was being transported from Michigan to Florida and had an estimated street value of just under $10,000.
