with Class 1 felony manufacture with the intent to deliver between 1 and 15 grams of heroin.

According to Centralia police, Jerron Owens was arrested around 7:40 Monday night during a traffic stop for failure to signal, after officers noted a strong odor of cannabis in the vehicle and called the K9 officer to the scene.

The dog reportedly alerted on the vehicle and a subsequent search revealed 23 individual baggies containing a substance believed to be heroin.

Owens was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail. His next court appearance in the case is January 5, 2016, with court appointed counsel.
