Pair jailed after stop


TAHLEQUAH — Two Cherokee County residents were arrested by Tahlequah police last week following a traffic stop.

Richard Morgan, 37, of Tahlequah, and Carol A. Sanders, 32, of Cookson, were arrested on drug-related charges.

Elias Saavedra, 19, of Tahlequah, was arrested Friday morning for having no driver’s license. Saavedra was stopped by police for an improper lane change. Police said a canine officer also alerted on a lock box in the vehicle, and the box contained a small amount of a white, powdery substance.
