Both Louie Lazore and Thomas Roundpoint were pulled over around 3:00 p.m.Thursday, after their truck matched the description given to State Police.

Troopers say Lazore claimed he was driving to the state fair and gave permission to search the truck.

Lazore and Roundpoint were both charged with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute.
