Ocean City police said that at around 2 a.m. Monday, officers conducted the traffic stop in the area of 85th Street and Coastal Highway after police saw the vehicle swerving in and out of the traffic lanes.

Police said after a search of the vehicle, officers located six packages of heroin and numerous drug paraphernalia, including items typically used for packaging and distributing drugs. Also seized were approximately 10 assorted prescription pills, according to investigators.

Twenty-four-year-old Hannah Knoll Norris, of Fairfax, Va., was identified as the driver of the vehicle and 25-year-old Scott Edward Kahler, of Falls Church, Va., was identified as the passenger.
