Traffic stop leads to drug bust and two arrests

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON,Okla_A traffic stop for an expired tag in Lawton ended in a drug bust and two arrests. 

Investigators say an officer stopped Terry Howell and Christy Komahcheet on Sheridan Road last week for expired tags.  But, a criminal history check revealed that both Howell and Komacheet had outstanding warrants.

Police arrested the two and booked them into city jail. The arresting officer says he saw Howell hand something to Komacheet before the arrest, so he alerted the jail.  

During a search at the jail, officers found a plastic bag filled with over 12 grams of meth in Komacheet's pants. Court records show Komahcheet had been convicted of drug possession back in 2006.
