Three women were arrested Friday in Cass County, Iowa, on drug charges.

The Cass County Sheriff’s Office says a police dog helped them find nearly 68 grams of methamphetamine, a digital scale and packaging materials during a traffic stop on Highway 83, near Marne Road.

Deputies arrested 30-year-old Amber York, of Omaha, 19-year-old Selena Hansen, of Atlantic, and 31-year-old Melanie Bowers, of Council Bluffs.

Hansen faces an additional charge of driving while suspended. York is also charged with possession of contraband in a correctional facility and possession of drug paraphernalia.

A judge ordered each of them held on $100,000 bond, according to officials.
