Tuesday evening, Dunbar Police were led to Johnie Mason IV and Jason Edward McClanahan after authorities received tips about suspicious activity in the camper the two were driving.

It happened on Roxalana Road near Marks Road in Dunbar.

Neighbor Teresa Dent watched the arrest unfold and said when she spotted the camper pulled over, she suspected drugs were involved.
