      Traffic stop lands one in jail on meth charges

      Brian Martin is charged with possession of a chemical with intent to manufacture meth

      Having a headlight out has landed a northeast Missouri man behind bars on drug charges.

      Brian Martin, 35, of Novinger, is charged with possession of a chemical with intent to manufacture meth and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.

      According to court papers, Martin was stopped by a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper because one of the headlights on his vehicle wasn't working. During the traffic stop, Martin consented to a search of his vehicle. In the vehicle, the trooper found numerous items known to be used in the manufacture of meth.

      Martin is being held in the Adair County jail under $25,000 cash only bond.
