PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

Police say a traffic stop Saturday night led to drug charges for a Paducah couple.

It happened about 11 p.m. Saturday on South 3rd Street.

The cash was found inside the home but the marijuana, scales and other drug paraphernalia were found in a cooler under the back porch of the home. Police say the cooler had the name "Malear" written on it.

Joseph Malear, 29, of Paducah was charged with possession of a controlled substance and trafficking in marijuana and booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.

Eva Tanner22, of Paducah was cited on charges of possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance and released.
