Two men have been arrested for carrying 200 packets of heroin.

Rhode Island State Police pulled over a speeding car on 195 in East Providence around 2:30 Friday, and the Trooper noticed both driver and passenger were extremely nervous and told conflicting stories of where they were coming from.

A Police K-9 alerted Troopers to 200 packets of heroin inside the vehicle. The driver, Gary Couto, 35, of Somerset, and the passenger, Steven Bush, 37, of Fall River, were arrested and charged with possession of heroin with intent to deliver and conspiracy to violate a controlled substance act.

Both suspects will be arraigned Saturday.
