COLUMBIA — A mother and son were arrested following a traffic stop by the Boone County Sheriff's Department early Wednesday.

A deputy conducted a traffic stop around 12:15 a.m. Wednesday on U.S. 63 near Broadway after seeing the vehicle commit a lane violation, according to a release from the Sheriff's Department. The deputy arrested Brandon A. Jones, 21, and his mother, Lisa M. Jones, 43, both of Eldon, Detective Tom O'Sullivan said.

Brandon Jones was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, driving on a suspended license and on a previous warrant from the Clive Police Department in Clive, Iowa, O'Sullivan said. The warrant was related to the three charges of delivering controlled substances and one charge of conspiring to deliver controlled substances. It carries a $400,000 cash-only bond, according to the release.

Lisa Jones was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. According to the release, the bonds on those two charges are $4,500 and $500, respectively. 

Both were incarcerated at the Boone County Jail pending payment of their bonds as of 8 a.m. Wednesday.
