Drugs discovered included heroin and a large amount of methamphetamine.
In addition, one of the two men arrested in the investigation is wanted in Ohio.
The investigation began as a traffic stop in Gordonsville.
Sheriffs department K-9 officer Deputy Brady Dodson stopped the vehicle on Gordonsville Highway at the Interstate 40 west bound on ramp because of a non-functioning headlight.
The silver GMC Envoy was driven by Joseph Daniel Anderson, 42, Antioch, who told Deputy Dodson he did not have any identification with him but provided information verbally, according to an offense report filed by Deputy Dodson.
