Police in Johnson County, Kentucky arrested two men on cocaine trafficking charges after a traffic stop on U.S. Route 23 Wednesday evening near Highlawn Elementary School.

Ashley Bowman and Michael Issacs, Junior, both of Morehead, Kentucky, were charged with Trafficking in a Controlled Substance and Trafficking with a Controlled Substance within 1000 yards of a school.

Police say when they stopped Bowman's Ford Pickup for speeding, the two men inside began acting suspiciously. The Johnson County Sheriff's Department drug dog "Storm" conducted a "sniff test" and indicated the presence of drugs. Deputies searched the truck and found 96 grams of a substance that field tested positive for cocaine.

Investigators say the drugs have an estimated street value of between $8,000 and $10,000.

Bowman and Issacs were taken to the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center. Their bonds were set at $10,000 each. Police say the investigation is on going.
