BUNKER HILL, Indiana — A pair of central Indiana men were arrested on drug charges in Miami County Sunday.

State police say Trooper James Wilkison conducted a traffic stop Sunday around 9:25 p.m. on U.S. 31 near SR 218 after spotting a Honda Civic that did not have its headlights illuminated.

While talking with the driver, 27-year-old Richard Egan of Indianapolis, the trooper said he smelled an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. 

Upon searching the vehicle, police allegedly found two pounds of marijuana, psilocybin mushrooms, 450 containers of suspected THC wax, 72 wrapped marijuana edibles, drug paraphernalia and around $15,000 in cash.

Egan and 23-year-old Dylan Whitlow of Greenwood were arrested and taken to the Miami County Jail on preliminary charges of dealing marijuana and possession of marijuana. Egan also faces charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
