DENVER — Police arrested Wednesday a carful of people on the way from Colorado to a music festival in Arkansas, charging them with transporting a variety of narcotics into the state, KFSM reported.

An officer in Bella Vista, Ark., said he had reasonable suspicion that there were illegal drugs in the Subaru Outback and called a K-9 unit to investigate. Following a search with a drug-sniffing dog, police seized LSD, marijuana, Psilocybin mushrooms, Xanax pills, an unknown white powder and marijuana-laced chocolate chip cookies, police told KFSM.

The four occupants of the vehicle, headed from Colorado to the Wakarusa Music Festival, were arrested and transported to jail. Katherine Pumplin, 19; Vondel Fransen, 22; and Sean McNicol, 21, were arrested on two counts of felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, two counts each of felony and misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Their car was also seized.

Wakarusa, held May 30 through June 2 in Ozark, Ark., features dozens of acts including Widespread Panic, STS9 and Snoop Dogg.
