During the stop, Keith JaJuan Cooper, a passenger, was recognized as a man arrested Jan. 18 on charges of dealing heroin and heroin possession, police said.

Early Wednesday, police searched an apartment at 844 Ridgewood Drive in connection with the case and found evidence of the distribution of heroin, police said.
