Franklin, 31 years old from Logansport, IND and passenger, Edward R. Prince, 28 years old from Logansport were questioned by Trooper Stinson.

After talking with the subjects, Trooper Stinson requested assistance from Monticello Police K-9 Officer Tony Stroup reference possible criminal activity.  Officer Stroup walked his K-9 partner around the Oldsmobile and the K-9 alerted on the vehicle.  A subsequent search of the vehicle netted approximately three pounds of suspected marijuana and other narcotics yet to be determined.  Both Franklin and Prince were placed under arrest and transported to White County Jail on charges of Dealing in a Controlled Substance and Possession of a Controlled Substance both Class D Felonies.  The investigation is continuing.
