Routine traffic stop leads to drug bust in Bridgeport

A routine traffic stop results in two Kentucky men arrested on drug charges in Bridgeport.
Michael Cornett and Dylan Robert were pulled over on Thursday around 11 a.m. near the Meadowbrook exit on I-79 for speeding.
During the investigation of the black Kia Soul, the two raised the suspicions of the Bridgeport Police Department and a K-9 officer, along with two members of the Mountaineer Highway Interdiction Team from the region were dispatched to the scene.
According to authorities, 1.5 ounces of hallucinogenic mushrooms, 30 hits of LSD, 1 gram of crack cocaine and a small amount of cannabis hash were located in the vehicle.
The two are charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and are being held in North Central Regional Jail.
