SPOKANE-- A traffic stop on Thursday resulted in a half dozen charges in Spokane Valley.

Around 2:00 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy J. Rodriguez was patrolling the area of Park and Broadway when he stopped a vehicle for a traffic infraction.

Deputy Rodriguez contacted the driver, 47-year-old Kenneth Rawson,and determined he was driving on a suspended license. He was also advised by dispatch that Rawson had a warrant for driving on a suspended license as well.
 
After placing Rawson under arrest, Deputy Rodriguez located a clear plastic baggie containing a white crystal substance in Rawson's pocket. Rawson was a bit surprised as he told Deputy Rodriguez he forgot that it was there. Deputy Rodriguez field tested the substance that showed a presumptive positive result for methamphetamine.
 
Deputy Rodriguez checked the passenger's name, identified as 49-year-old John Albright, to see if he had a valid driver's license to drive the vehicle. Dispatch advised Albright had two felony warrants for Delivery of a Controlled Substance, one felony warrant for Bail Jumping and one misdemeanor warrant for driving on a suspended license.
 
Rawson was booked into the Spokane County Jail on the charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance and Driving While License Suspended.

Albright was booked into jail on all four of his warrants.
