Traffic stop leads to drug charges
A Jackson County woman is in custody after a Washington County traffic stop led to the discovery of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
On Feb. 11, Washington County Sheriff’s deputies witnessed a vehicle swaying between the lines on State Road 77. A traffic stop was initiated, and deputies made contact with the driver, Melissa L. Radford, 40, of Graceville.
A release from WCSO states that Radford would not make eye contact with the deputy and that after a brief check of her license, a department issued K-9 was deployed.
The K-9 alerted positive to the presence of narcotics and Radford stated she was in possession of a glass smoking pipe in her right front pocket. She was detained.
In a subsequent search of the vehicle, deputies located methamphetamine in a backpack in the passenger seat.
Radford was transported to the Washington County Jail on charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
