Two Wisconsin Rapids residents were arrested Wednesday after the Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Office found approximately one pound of cocaine and one pound of marijuana in their vehicle.

The sheriff's office stopped the vehicle on the Hickory Street off ramp of northbound Interstate 41. A K-9 conducted an open air sniff of the vehicle, alerting a deputy that there were illegal drugs inside. The cocaine and marijuana were then found after a search.

A 35-year-old man and 30-year-old woman were arrested. While trying to handcuff the man, the sheriff's office said he "became extremely agitated and pulled away" from deputies. He continued to resist until the K-9 was brought out, at which time he began cooperating.
