MORGAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Morgan County deputies arrested two men they say are "key players" in the heroin supply to the Shoals area.

Deputies pulled over John Wesley Akin and David Ros in a traffic stop on Highway 157, Monday. K-9 deputies were called to the scene and searched the vehicle.

According to Sheriff Ana Franklin, deputies found a large amount of heroin, more than double the weight for trafficking standards in Alabama. It had a street value of about $2,400.

Akin and Ros were arrested and charged with trafficking illegal drugs. The suspects' 2008 Cadillac STS worth about $30,000 was seized along with the drugs.
