Deputies stopped the vehicle on Highway 63, just north of Vienna, and found what they suspected to be heroin, methamphetamines and drug paraphernalia, as well as a firearm, which authorities reffered to as an assault rifle, and several rounds of ammunition. One of the three, 45-year-old Christopher Harris of Dixon, also had a concealed weapon.
Harris was arrested for unlawful use of a weapon, a class D felony, and unlawful possession of a firearm, a class C felony. The other two â?? 28-year-old Christofer Howe and 29-year-old Jessica Dumas, both of Dixon â?? were arrested for possession of a controlled substance, a class C felony.
All three are in the Maries County Jail, each on a $50,000 bond.
