TOLLAND, Conn. (WTNH) — Two men have been arrested after state police found heroin in their car during a traffic stop.

On Friday evening, state police troopers pulled over a silver Saab that they say wasn’t staying in its lane on I-84 eastbound in Tolland. Troopers say that as they spoke to the occupants, they realized that neither the driver or the passenger had a valid driver’s license, and the driver gave troopers a fake name and date of birth.

As troopers investigated, they found 100 bags of heroin stamped with the word “Fatboy” inside the vehicle.

Troopers arrested 42-year-old Jeremy Brooks and 43-year-old James Whitehead, both of Maine.

Brooks is charged with criminal impersonation, interfering with an investigation, possession of heroin, possession with intent to sell, failure to maintain lane, and operating without a license. He is held on $5,000 bond and is due in court on April 18.

Whitehead is charged with possession of narcotics. He was released on $5,000 bond and is due in court on April 27.
