NORTHWOOD, Iowa – A traffic stop leads to drug charges against two men.

At around 8:30 pm Friday, a Worth County sheriff’s deputy pulled over a 1991 Buick LeSabre at the intersection of 8th Street N and 3rd Avenue N in Northwood. The deputy says the car had a cracked windshield and a license plate light that was not functioning.

The Worth County Sheriff’s Office says a search of the car found marijuana, methamphetamine, two pipes used for smoking drugs, several baggies, a scale, and several hypodermic needles.
