Special to the Enquirer

Early Sept. 15, a Morgan County sheriff’s deputy reported observing a car traveling on Highway 67 in the Priceville area without a tag and initiated a traffic stop. It was a traffic stop that ended in three arrests.

The deputy made contact with the driver, Sashe Agnew, and passengers Hillary Jade Thompson and Ava Franklin. The driver informed the deputy she had recently purchased the vehicle but could not supply her driver’s license or proof of purchase.
