Lowell said Deputy Sheriff Amanda Buller and her partner K9 Deputy Huk were patrolling east of Rock Springs on Interstate 80 Tuesday afternoon when she stopped an eastbound 2017 Dodge van with Kentucky license plates for traffic violations. Bonner, Mason, Williams, Sullivan, and Philpot were in the van and when she made contact with the driver, she smelled marijuana. During a subsequent search of the van, a little over 54 grams of marijuana and about 1/4 pound of heroin were recovered, as was a large quantity of cash.

All five men remained in custody as of press time, as the investigation continues.
