TROUP COUNTY, Ga. (WTHR) – Two women in Georgia were arrested after deputies found a large amount of drugs in their vehicle.

The Troup County Sheriff's Office says that deputies initially pulled over the vehicle for a window tint violation.

During the traffic stop, deputies observed suspicious behavior and had their K-9 sniff around the car.

The K-9 indicated a smell of narcotics and deputies discovered 2 gallons of GHB (Gamma Hydroxybutyrate), commonly known as the "date rape drug."

The driver, 47-years-old Ashley Prince of Opelika, Alabama and her passenger, 26-year-old Jessica Partridge also of Opelika, were arrested and charged with Possession of GHB with Intent to Distribute.

A search of Prince’s residence found methamphetamine, LSD, marijuana and additional GHB. She will be facing additional drug charges.
