Kelly Jo Wilson, 28, and Cheyenne Barnes, 28, were arrested after detectives found two ounces of methamphetamine during a vehicle search, officials say.

Two ounces of methamphetamine were seized during a traffic stop in Huachuca City on Friday, officials say.

Detectives pulled over a vehicle for a civil traffic violation in Huachuca City, an hour southeast of Tucson, the Cochise County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post.

A canine alerted detectives to the odor of narcotics near the vehicle, so the vehicle was searched. Around two ounces of methamphetamine were found, in addition to drug paraphernalia, the sheriff's office said. 

Cheyenne Barnes, 28, was the driver of the vehicle. Kelly Jo Wilson, 28, was the passenger and was on probation at the time of the incident.
