Couple arrested after police find drugs, guns in car

Heroin, marijuana, 3 guns found during traffic stop

MARION COUNTY, Fla. – Detectives initially pulled a local couple over for the tint on their windows being too dark, but a check with a police dog revealed much more was inside the truck.

Deputies arrested Felipe and Stephanie Rodriguez Thursday after they found a pound and a half of heroin in a cassette player and three guns. They also found marijuana in the center console.

This is not the first time Felipe has had a run-in with the law. His record shows he's a convicted felon for drug possession back in 1998.

The couple is in the Marion County Jail and is facing a long list of charges.
