SCOTT COUNTY, Ind. (WHAS11)—Two men are arrested in southern Indiana late Sunday evening.

Police stopped a black SUV on U.S. Highway #31 near S.R. #56 for no headlights, but during the traffic stop the driver, Kevin N. Smith, 43 from Seymour, Ind.  was found to be driving on a suspended drivers license.

Police had Smith and the passenger, Kevin C. Lucas, 38 from Scottsburg, Ind., exit the vehicle so it could be inventoried before being impounded.

Police said as Lucas exited the vehicle a small zipper bag fell from him onto the floor of the vehicle. Upon further investigation, police found two hypodermic needs and other drug paraphernalia in the bag.

Both Smith and Lucas were arrested and taken to Scott county Jail.

Smith was charged with Driving While License Suspended and Lucas was charged with Possession of Hypodermic Needle with a Prior Conviction and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
