Meridian police arrested multiple people in what they say was a drug deal gone bad.

The incident began when undercover Meridian police officers watched what they believed was a drug deal between Robert Cockerell of Meridian and Taylor Turnbull of Greenleaf. After the drug deal, officers followed Turnbull’s vehicle .

Officers then watched as a car driven by Stevie Defrance of Meridian tried to run Turnbull off the road and eventually rammed his car.

The Idaho Press reports, Police stopped both vehicles and performed a search which resulted in heroin being found.

In all, six people were booked into the Ada County Jail on various drug charges.
