During a search of the vehicle, deputies located a package containing a powdery substance believed to be heroin. Richland County Sheriff’s Department Drug Task Force arrived on the scene and positively identified the power as 258 grams of heroin.

The Sheriff stated that Ceja has been transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
