BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Two people were arrested Saturday when two pistols, as well as cocaine and heroin, were found inside their vehicle. 

Lasha Kimblyn Ford approached a safety checkpoint at Highway 45 and Lindhaven Drive in the Pineville area Saturday nervous and shaking, according to deputies. 

Deputies could smell a strong marijuana odor coming from the silver Nissan Altima and searched the car to find 131 grams of a substance that field-tested positive for heroin and  434 grams that field tested positive for cocaine, deputies said. 

They also found a loaded glock 9 millimeter, a "unique" model D2 .22 firearm and $422. 

Ford and her passenger, Jared Jamal Williams, were both transported to Hill Finklea Detention Center and booked with holds pending a bond hearing and warrant service.
