A Father's Day traffic stop led to the seizure of 5 1/2 pounds of methamphetamine, along with other controlled substances.

On Monday, Callaway County Prosecuting Attorney Christopher Wilson charged Andrea Owens, 42, of Lake Ozark, with the felony offenses of trafficking drugs and possession of a controlled substance. As of Thursday, Owens was being held without bond at the Callaway County Jail pending a court bond review.

The K-9 unit including K-9 Krieger stopped Owens for a traffic violation at 9:40 a.m. Sunday on U.S. 54 near Route HH in Fulton. During the course of the investigation, the methamphetamine — in addition to other felony controlled substances — was located in the vehicle.

The street value of the recovered methamphetamine is more than $300,000, according to the sheriff's office press release.

The criminal investigation concerning this matter is ongoing and involves the Cole County Sheriff's Office, Miller County Sheriff's Office, Mustang drug task force, Mid-MO drug task force and federal law enforcement agents.
