SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A traffic stop for a burnt-out headlight led to several drug charges for a Shepherdsville couple.

Jeremy Dunton, 36, and Analisa Dunton, 31, were pulled over on KY 44 near Melwood Drive on Wednesday, according to Shepherdsville police.

When officers approached the vehicle a scale that appeared to be covered in methamphetamine was sitting in the front seat. Police searched the vehicle and found three bags of methamphetamine weighing over one-half a pound, several thousand dollars in cash and drug paraphernalia.
