Two men are behind bars, charged with dealing drugs in Smyrna.

Officers acting on a phone tip questioned Tyler Scott of Dover and Malik Rothwell of Clayton about alleged drug dealing in the Green Meadows community Friday afternoon, Smyrna police said.

A search of the car the two were sitting in turned up 545 bags, or nearly 4 grams, of heroin, a loaded gun, and about $1,200 in suspected drug money.

Scott and Rothwell were booked into prison on firearms and drug counts, and Scott was also charged with conspiracy.
