A Monday traffic stop by a Randolph County Sheriff's deputy led to the arrest of 27-year-old Jordan L. Bunn, of Sparta, on drug charges.

According to a news release from the sheriff's office, Bunn was stopped for driving an unregistered dirt bike on the roadway with no insurance.

During the stop, the sheriff's office K-9 deputy, Dano, conducted a "free air sniff" of Bunn's property.
