Drug arrest with charges pending

Two people were taken into custody by Laclede County Deputies following a call about a suspicious vehicle at the I44 Exit ramp at the 140-mile marker late last week. According to the caller, a woman was slumped over the center console, and when officers observed both a man and woman asleep in the vehicle. The responding deputy had to open the door to wake them up, and during a search found illicit substances. Seized from the car was a container with multiple cut blue pills, two baggies with white residue, and a glass smoking device with white residue, which tested positive for methamphetamine. The woman and the man were taken to the Laclede County Jail with charges pending.
