(AVOCA) - A traffic stop Tuesday evening landed two Bedford men in jail.

Indiana State Police Sgt. Greg Day conducted a traffic stop near the intersection of Avoca-Eureka and Patton Hill roads. The stop was conducted for a defective muffler, failure to signal a turn, white light violation (shining to the rear) and seatbelt violations by both the driver and passenger.

Upon speaking with the two occupants, Sgt. Day identified the driver as 19-year-old Kaden M. Wilson of Bedford and the passenger as 20-year-old Jackson T. Craig, also of Bedford.

Sgt. Day then discovered the license plate affixed to the vehicle was not properly registered and belonged to a different automobile that Wilson owns. In addition, the title produced for the vehicle was not signed or dated.

Sgt. Day asked for and was given consent to search the truck. As Wilson exited the vehicle, he gave consent to search his person as well. He was found to be in possession of two bags of methamphetamine.

A further search revealed several items associated with drug use, such as digital scales and multiple smoking devices (meth pipes). Additionally, a wallet was found on the passenger side floorboard that contained the license and other belongings of Craig. Inside the wallet were two small bags of meth and another bag of marijuana. A loaded handgun belonging to Wilson was also found in the driver's side door.

Wilson is facing a Level 5 felony charge of possession of methamphetamine with a firearm and a Level 6 felony change of maintaining a common nuisance and a Class C misdemeanor charges of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Craig is facing a Level 6 felony charge of possession of meth and misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Sgt. Day was assisted by Trp. Gabe Bault and Lawrence County Sheriff's Deputy Tillett.
