Two Sedalia residents were arrested following a traffic stop on February 28 in the area of 1st and State Fair. Police say the driver, 22-year-old Joshua Ryan Phillips, was arrested for driving while suspended, while a passenger in the vehicle, 25-year-old Kayla Marie Prall, told police that she had drugs in her purse and handed over a small bag of methamphetamine. Both Phillips and Prall were taken to the Pettis County Jail.
