Keith Benard Tucker, 50 of Detroit, Michigan, was stopped for a traffic violation on December 31, 2018 near the 212 mile marker of Highway 218. Law enforcement says he was found with a brown powdery substance about the size of a softball that tested positive for heroin. A loaded .45 caliber handgun was also found on the passenger seat of Tucker’s vehicle.

He’s charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin and possession of contraband in a correctional facility.
