Saturday traffic stop leads to felony drug arrest

A routine traffic stop Saturday by the Vicksburg Police Department turned into a felony drug arrest.

On Saturday, at 7:47 a.m., an officer stopped a 2008 Honda Accord on U.S. Highway 61 South for a tag violation.

Steven Sanders, 28, of Vicksburg, was arrested on local warrants. A search revealed approximately .77 grams of methamphetamine in one of his pockets.

Sanders appeared before Judge Angela Carpenter on Monday in Vicksburg Municipal Court on a charge of possession of methamphetamine.

His bond was set at $40,000 and his case was bound over to the Warren County grand jury.
