ASHTON—Two people were arrested following a traffic stop shortly after midnight into Saturday, Nov. 26, on 230th Street at Northwest Boulevard in Ashton.

The arrest of 24-year-old Josh Robert Titus of Spirit Lake and 24-year-old Sydnee Lynn Johnson of Sheldon stemmed from the stop of a 2006 Ford Fusion for an equipment violation, according to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.

The odor of marijuana was detected.

Titus, the driver, did not have an ID on him, and when asked, he gave a name and birth date that later were determined were not correct.

When his real name was determined, it was discovered he had a no contact order in place with Johnson, the passenger, and he had a suspended license.

A dab pen containing THC was found under the passenger seat in the vehicle, a THC vaping cartridge was found in the center console, and a bag containing methamphetamine and a meth pipe were found in the back seat, according to the incident report.

Titus was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance — third or subsequent offense — meth; possession of a controlled substance — third or subsequent offense — marijuana; two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia; violation of a no contact/protective order; and driving while his license was denied, suspended, canceled or revoked.

Johnson was arrested on a charge of violation of a no contact/protective order.
