JASPER — Two individuals were booked into jail after a traffic stop early Saturday.
Police stopped a 1992 Buick at U.S. 231 and Fifth Street at 2:30 a.m. after noting the car displayed a license plate that returned to a Toyota, according to Indiana State Police.
The driver, Stephen R. Houchin, 55, Petersburg, was transported to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center for a blood draw that allegedly found several controlled substances in his system, according to police.
The passenger, Amy L. King, 46, 8591 E. State Road 56, Otwell, was found to possess marijuana during the stop, police said. Later, at Memorial Hospital, she allegedly tried to flush a glass pipe with methamphetamine residue.

King was booked into jail at 6:09 a.m. on preliminary charges of Level 6 felony methamphetamine possession and obstruction of justice, plus misdemeanor possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.
King posted bond Saturday afternoon and Houchin was released from jail later Saturday morning.
