A significant amount of hard drugs are off the streets of Scottsbluff after an early Sunday morning arrest.

Around 1:30 a.m. an officer with the Scottsbluff Police Department searched a car on East Overland. The first occupant, 28-year-old Manuel Topia Jr., was found to have a brick of marijuana weighing 3.44 ounces.

A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of an additional 5.4 grams of marijuana, as well as two bags containing 33.2 grams of cocaine.

Topia was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance (marijuana and cocaine), as well as possession with intent to deliver (marijuana and cocaine). 

The second occupant, 26-year-old Tiffannee Jo Garnier, claimed she had no knowledge of the drugs being in the car, which was a rental signed out in her name. Garnier was arrested and charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine, and possession of marijuana less than 1 oz.
