Vermillion Co. Traffic Stop Results In Drug Arrests

Vermillion County, In. – Saturday afternoon Vermillion County Deputies stopped a vehicle for doing 102 MPH in a 60 MPH Zone Southbound on State Road 63 in the Newport area. The occupants of the vehicle were identified as Lonzell French (20) of Hammond, Indiana and Dareon Mobley (19) of East Chicago, Indiana. While deputies spoke with the driver, signs of criminal behavior were noted, and the smell of raw marijuana came from the car. Further investigation led to the discovery of multiple individually packed packages of marijuana, a large bulk bag of marijuana along with a large amount of cash.  It was determined that French and Mobley were on their way to Vincennes University to sell the product. Both French and Mobley were later released with a court date in February.
