Police arrested two people for drug trafficking after boarding a Greyhound bus from Atlanta to Cincinnati with a stash of heroin.

Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones said Quentrell Heard, 41, and Julia Still, 29, face charges of drug trafficking along with possession and were held on Friday at the Butler County Jail.

Jones said authorities busted the pair after the Butler County Undercover Regional Narcotics, or BURN; Taskforce received a tip.

According to Cincinnati.com, Narcotics officers witnessed Still and Heard meeting at the Greyhound bus station in Cincinnati, who then traveled to Butler County.

Police busted both suspects after deputies from the Butler County sheriff’s department stopped the vehicle the pair was driving.  A search using a K-9 detected the drugs and officers discovered Still in the possession of two ounces of heroin.

According to the sheriff, Heard told authorities he planned on processing the heroin to yield a product with an estimated street value of $28,000.

“This investigation paid off, and fast,” police Lt. Todd Langmeyer said. “It is always a good day when we can get that much off the street at once. BURN agents and road patrol deputies did a fantastic job.”

Jones said charges could potentially be upgraded pending lab results.
