Witnessing a crime and reporting it can be just as frightening as being the victim of a crime. Here’s what you should do if you witness illegal activity.

Two people were arrested in connection with attempting to distribute meth when Monroe County sheriff’s deputies found drugs and weapons in their car last week.

On Nov. 15, police pulled over a “suspicious vehicle” in the 4500 block of Regtown Road in Prairie Du Rocher, a news release from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department stated Monday.

Kodi A. Lafore, 22, of Waterloo, and Heather N. Jones, 35, of Columbia, were arrested when police searched the car and found meth, marijuana, ammunition and knives inside, the release stated.

Both were arrested for unlawful possession of meth with intent to deliver, the release stated. Lafore had an outstanding warrant from Randolph County.

In February, Lafore was arrested and charged in connection with the fatal stabbing of 36-year-old Adam Sesto, of Red Bud. Before his most recent arrest, he was out on bail while he awaited a second-degree murder trial.

According to the release, both people were in custody at the Monroe County Jail on Monday. Lafore’s bail was set at $250,000 and Jones’ bail was set at $25,000.
