Indiana State Police say two Indianapolis men are facing drug dealing charges after they ran out of gas on I-65 in Jackson County on Tuesday afternoon.

A trooper became suspicious after stopping to help the stranded car about four miles south of Seymour at about 1 p.m. that afternoon. A search of the car uncovered what police believe was cocaine, controlled substances, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

The driver, 35-year-old Benjamin R. Farr, and a passenger, 25-year-old Daniel M. Pryor, were arrested on preliminary charges of dealing and possessing cocaine, plus possessing the other drugs and paraphernalia.
