A female who arrived five minutes earlier approached the front passenger’s door of Mackall’s vehicle. The female handed Mackall currency and Mackall handed her “something small.” When officers moved towards the vehicles, the female threw a brown napkin towards the bushes. Officers recovered the napkin that contained two small blue glassine baggies that contained heroin.
