Two people were arrested after being stopped by a Neosho police officer Friday.
“The driver took off running,” Chief David Kennedy reported. “He knew he had a felony warrant, so he ran and was arrested for resisting. The passenger in the vehicle was charged with unlawful use of a weapon and possession of drug paraphernalia.”
April Love, 29, was in possession of a butterfly knife, which Kennedy said is illegal.
Joshua Ryan, 28, is jailed in Newton County on a $35,000 surety bond on resisting arrest and is held without bond on a fugitive-from-justice warrant from Benton County, Ark.
The traffic stop was initiated at about 1:15 p.m. in the area of Coler and High streets.
