Two people are in jail, and two children placed in protective custody after a traffic stop turned into a drug bust near Hamburg Saturday.

Fremont County deputies pulled over Jessika Leach and Jerry Easley about 15 miles north of the Missouri state line around 5 p.m. Saturday. A search of the car reportedly turned up more than 67 grams of methamphetamine. 

Easley and Leach were booked into the Fremont County Jail on drug and child endangerment charges.
