Two traffic stops lead to seizure of ‘enough fentanyl to kill over 2,000 people’

Police in Indiana recently made two traffic stops that potentially saved the lives of thousands.

On September 1, deputies with the Scott County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop, which led to an investigation that ended with the arrest of Scott Todd Cope, 32.

Cope was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, maintaining a common nuisance, unlawful possession of a syringe, possession of marijuana and driving while suspended.

Approximately 30 grams of methamphetamine was discovered when he was pulled over.

Hours later, deputies conducted another traffic stop within the county.

The second traffic stop ended with the arrest of three people.

They were found to be in possession of approximately 5.5 grams of fentanyl, a half pound of marijuana, two guns and $1,000.

Deputies arrested Austin Bogan, 25, Nicholas George, 18 and Byron Miller, 28.
