Three people were arrested or cited for alleged drug violations following a Jan. 4 traffic stop in Cottage Grove.

Subsequently, a 29-year-old Anoka man was arrested on suspicion of fifth-degree possession of controlled substance after he allegedly was found with methamphetamine. The case was referred to the Washington County Attorney’s Office for possible charges.

A 22-year-old Anoka man was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia and no driver’s license, and a 22-year-old Elk River woman was ticketed for possession of drug paraphernalia.
