A traffic stop for a vehicle with expired license tags resulted in the arrest of a man and woman from Cass County on drug charges. The Daily NonPareil says 32-year old Randi Shafer and 32-year old Jacob Leary, both of Atlantic, were taken into custody at around 12:45-p.m. Sunday, after the car they were in was pulled over by a Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s deputy near the intersection of Highway 6 and 470th Street, near Oakland.

According to the police report, during the course of the stop, officers found 16.1 grams of methamphetamine as well as four syringes, which were classified as drug paraphernalia. Shafer and Leary were arrested on a felony suspicion of possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver, charge, and possession of drug paraphernalia. If convicted on the felony charges, Shafer and Leary face up to 25 years in prison and fines amounting to $50,000.
