Traffic stop in Centralia leads to the arrests of two men on heroin charges

February 22, 2017

MARION COUNTY — Two men are facing felony drug possession charges stemming from a traffic stop Monday in Centralia.

Both 20-year-old Harrion Hawkins, of Centralia, and 46-year-old Scott Conner, of Salem, are charged with Class 4 felony possession of a controlled substance.

According to reports, Marion County Sheriff’s deputies stopped Hawkins’ Monday in Centralia for allegedly driving without a license.

Both men were arrested for alleged possession of cannabis. However, deputies reportedly found two baggies of a substance that field tested positive as heroin in a soda can Conner was holding when he got out of the car.

While nothing was initially found on Hawkins, an inspection of the back seat of the squad car in which he was transported to the jail reportedly revealed two baggies similar to those found in Conner’s soda can.

A substance in those baggies also reportedly tested positive for heroin.

Bail for Hawkins and Conner was set at $10,000 each and they were both given time to hire private attorneys. They are next due in court March 1 for status hearings.
