MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

According to Mississippi County Sheriff Keith Moore, two Mississippi County women were taken into custody after a weekend traffic stop.

The incident took place early Saturday morning.

Deputies made the traffic stop on a car they say was speeding through East Prairie.

As the vehicle came to a stop, two men jumped from the car and fled on foot.

During a search of the vehicle, the deputies found two twelve gauge shotguns and a box of ammunition inside the vehicle.

During the course of their investigation, deputies learned the identities of the men who fled the vehicle.

The sheriff says the men are convicted felons who live in Mississippi County.

Due to their prior felony convictions, both men will now face charges of resisting arrest and two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm.

Deputies believe the men fled because of the fear of being charged.

Kelsey Leigh Aycock, 22, and her mother, Carol Johnson, 42, both of East Prairie, are both charged with hindering prosecution for their refusal to identify the men.

Aycock is also charged with tampering with physical evidence. The sheriff says she destroyed a cell phone SIM card immediately prior her being taken into custody.

Both were taken to the Mississippi County Detention Center with bonds set at $25,000.
