Southside traffic stop leads to arrest of couple

A traffic stop late Tuesday night resulted in the arrest of a Bradford-area couple.

According to the incident report from the Independence County Sheriff’s Department, Deputy Jeremy Richardson pulled over a truck on which the driver’s side headlight was not working. 

The vehicle, which pulled off the highway and into a restaurant parking lot, was driven by Danielle Taylor (pictured below, right), 37, with Timothy Mark Sanford (left), 48, in the passenger seat, the report said.

Richardson noted he found Taylor was driving on a suspended driver’s license and had an absconder warrant for her arrest by the Arkansas Board of Parole, according to the incident report. Taylor also had a search waiver on file and was detained for incarceration. Sanford was wanted out of Jackson County and also was placed into custody, the report said.

Richardson also noted in his report that Sanford was found to be in possession of over $725 in cash. In the vehicle, authorities also found small zip baggies of marijuana and methamphetamine along with a digital scale, which is often used to measure the amount of illegal drugs to be sold.

Taylor and Sanford were taken to jail and placed on a probable cause hold for Sheriff Shawn Stephens to interview.

The incident report said possible charges the two could face include felony possession of meth, felony possession of marijuana with the purpose to deliver, felony possession of drug paraphernalia, and driving on a suspended driver’s license.
