Two people are behind bars in McCracken County after an early morning traffic stop.

According to Sergeant Todd Ray with the sheriff's department, a deputy spotted a car driving down Lone Oak Road without headlights on.

The car also had expired registration plates.

Johnson is also accused of trying to conceal three individually wrapped bags of suspected marijuana on her person when she realized they were being stopped.

McGee faces charges of trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, no registration plates, and improper equipment.

Johnson faces charges of trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with physical evidence, and possession of marijuana.
