EASTON, Md. – Easton police say a weekend traffic stop led to drug charges for both he and his passenger.

Police said that on Saturday officers pulled over Keith Jewell, 33, of Essex, Md., and Taylor Cannella, 20, of Parkville, Md., for driving 52 mph in a 35 mph zone on Ocean Gateway near Lomax Street.

After K-9 dogs sniffed the car and alerted police, officers searched the car where they said they found Suboxone strips, empty capsules and trace substances in small plastic bags. Police said they suspected the substance to be heroin.
