Police say 30-year-old Torrean Hughley of Salina was taken into custody after a drug sniffing dog indicated narcotics were located in the vehicle.

The arrest was made near mile marker 82 on I-135.

Hughley is now facing charges that could include distribution of a stimulant and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also wanted on a Saline County District Court warrant for failure to appear as well a similar warrant in Harvey County.
