SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Sioux Falls Police say three people are facing drug charges after almost 200 grams of cocaine were discovered in a car during a traffic stop.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens says the car was stopped around 8 p.m. Saturday after the driver cut off another vehicle that had the right of way. Clemens says an officer smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle, and a search uncovered three bags with cocaine.

Clemens says 19-year-old Blake Schroeder, 19-year-old Matthew Houff and 18-year-old Abbygail Thomas, all of Sioux Falls, were arrested. They face charges of possession and distribution of a controlled substance, and possession of marijuana and paraphernalia.

Records show Schroeder, who was driving the car, and the passengers are at the Minnehaha County Jail. It wasn’t immediately clear if they have legal representation.
