LAUREL HILL — A man and woman were arrested on drug charges after a traffic stop.

Deputies with the Walton County Sheriff’s Office were patrolling an area on Clear Springs Road when a driver made eye contact with a deputy and watched him as he passed. The woman’s action caught the deputy’s attention and he pulled her over.

The passenger immediately fled the traffic stop. While fleeing, he dropped approximately six grams of methamphetamine from his pocket.

The driver, a 24-year-ld woman, was detained by another deputy. She said the passenger ran because he had meth on his person. She also denied any relationship with the man, saying she was only giving him a ride.

A deputy asked her if she knew the man had drugs in the car, to which she replied, “I figured he had some, yes.”

The man was detained and said he and the woman were in a relationship. “She gives me dope, I give her some dope,” he told authorities, according to her arrest report.

The woman then said their relationship was “mostly sexual.” She also said she had used meth in the past, but not in a while.

While searching the vehicle, deputies found marijuana tucked in between the passenger seat and center console. The woman denied it was hers.

She was charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and marijuana possession. The man was charged with obstruction without violence, marijuana possession and meth possession with intent to sell.
