The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office arrested three women in Priceville after drugs were found during a traffic stop.

A deputy stopped a car without a tag on Hwy. 67 early Sunday, according to a post on the office’s Facebook page. Sashe Agnew was identified as the driver, with Hillary Jade Thompson and Ava Franklin as passengers.

Agnew told the deputy she could not supply a driver’s license or proof of purchase, the post said.
