IUKA - A pair of Tishomingo County traffic stops ended at the jail for two people this week.

A Tishomingo woman found herself back behind bars after a Tishomingo County deputy sheriff pulled her over on Highway 25 for careless driving on May 20. The woman's license was suspended and officers found a bag of methamphetamine in her purse.

Sandra Grubbs, 58, of 8 Monroe St., Tishomingo, was charged with possession of a controlled substance. Several months ago, she was arrested at her residence for selling drugs. The Mississippi Department of Corrections has placed a hold on Grubbs.

On Wednesday, deputies and the Iuka Police Department conducted a traffic stop on Highway 25 in Iuka for traffic violations. The driver did not have a valid license. A search of the driver, who has at least one felony conviction in Alabama, turned up numerous hydrocodone pills on him and a weapon in the vehicle.

Danny Hamm, 58, of 8043 Allsboro Road, Cherokee, Alabama, was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of a firearm by a felon.

He remains in the Tishomingo County Jail awaiting bond to be set by the Tishomingo County Justice Court.
