Two Davenport people have been charged with meth-related offenses after a traffic stop, according to police.
Joseph Allen Terry, 36, and Felina Danielle Lochner, age not available, are accused of the manufacture of methamphetamine, a felony, according to a news release from the Davenport Police Department.
The arrests were the result of a traffic stop around 10:15 pm Thursday, on Highway 61 close to the intersection of Y48, the release states. The Iowa State Patrol trooper who made the stop allegedly found evidence of items used in methamphetamine manufacturing. He contacted the Iowa Department of Narcotics Enforcement and Davenport police for assistance.

Several searches, both through warrants and consent searches, have been conducted with investigators confiscating more materials believed to be related to methamphetamine production.
Mr. Terry was being held Friday afternoon on $100,000 bond, according to the Scott County Jail website. Ms. Lochner also was being held on a $100,000 bond.
