WESTPORT - Police have arrested three Westport teenagers who were allegedly caught carrying several bags of heroin.

Police say an observant patrol officer discovered the drugs during a traffic stop. They say the men also had prescription drugs and about $240 in cash.

According to investigators, John Hanley, 19, and George Lawrence, 18, are charged with selling and possessing narcotics. They say Walter Kosner, 18, was also arrested after he texted one of the others during the arrest and officers set up a sting.

Officials say the suspects supplied other local teens and young adults with the drugs and believe more arrests may happen as their investigation progresses.

All three suspects have been released on bond.
