On Thursday morning, Sedalia Police initiated a traffic stop on a yellow Mercury Cougar because the license plates did not come back on file.

During the stop, officers detected the odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. A subsequent search resulted in the location of a small amount of marijuana.

Nicole Rae Chumpraphai, 43, of League City, Texas, was arrested for Possession of Marijuana.

Chumpraphai was transported to the Pettis County Jail where she was booked and released.
