(KNZA)--Two separate, early Thursday morning Jackson County traffic stops led to the arrest of both Topeka drivers.

Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse, in a release, says the first happened that morning around 2:20, when a deputy stopped a car near 182nd and U.S. Highway 75, for a traffic infraction.

During the course of the stop, Morse says, " the deputy developed probable [cause] that led to the search of the vehicle where" it's alleged that 29.3 grams of methamphetamine was located, and seized.

Arrested was 41-year-old Mark Grace, who faces charges for distribution of methamphetamine greater than 3.5 grams, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a hallucinogenic drug, possession of drug paraphernalia. Once in custody, Grace was booked into the Jackson County Jail.

The second traffic stop came about two hours later, at 4:30 Thursday morning, when a deputy conducted a traffic stop for traffic infractions near 142nd and U.S. Highway 75.

According to Morse, a Sheriff's Office "K9 was deployed which alerted to the presence of illegal drug contraband inside the vehicle," saying that "a probable cause search of the vehicle" followed, with 7.5 grams of methamphetamine allegedly located along with drug paraphernalia.

Arrested was 66-year-old Sandra Kay Groves, who faces charges for possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and transporting an open container. Following her arrest, Groves was booked into the Jackson County Jail.
