MOBERLY - Two people were arrested early Thursday morning in Moberly after police officers found 10 grams of methamphetamine during a vehicle search.

Officers pulled a car over for a traffic stop around 2 a.m. at the intersection of West Rollins Street and North Clark Street in Moberly.

Officers made contact with passengers Jason Roland and Lani Peacock, then decided to do a vehicle search, according to a press release from the Moberly Police Department. During the search, they found 10 grams of methamphetamine, drug-related paraphernalia and a scale.

Roland and Peacock were arrested and taken to the police station. While being transported, Peacock admitted to having a pipe used to smoke the drug on her person. Officers later recovered the pipe.

Both were formally charged through the Randolph County Prosecutor's Office for possession of a controlled substance on Thursday as well. 

Roland's bond was set at $10,000 while Peacock's was set at $5,000. 

Randolph County Sheriff's Office and Missouri State Highway Patrol assisted in the arrest.
