(KNZA)--A Friday morning traffic stop in Jackson County led to the arrest of a Mayetta woman on drug and stolen property charges.

Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse, in a release, said a sheriff's deputy stopped a car for a traffic infraction near 142nd Road and U.S 75 shortly before 10:00.

The driver was found to have a suspended license and was subsequently arrested. The passenger, 37-year-old Saleena Rae Masquat, also had a warrant through Topeka Police Department. A third occupant was identified and later released.

During the traffic stop, Morse said a Jackson County Sheriff's K-9 was deployed and indicated to the presence of drugs. A search of the vehicle revealed both suspected methamphetamine and marijuana as well as paraphernalia indicating the distribution of methamphetamine. Also located in the vehicle was electronic equipment that belonged to a Topeka Walmart store that was confirmed to be stolen.

Masquat was arrested for distribution of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of stolen property.

Masquat was booked into the Jackson County Jail, where she is being held on a $50,000 bond.
