Jackson Co. Sheriff's office is reporting a traffic stop that ended up in a drug bust.

Deputies Desnoyer and Hudson responded to Fry Drive for a suspicious situation report just before 11 p.m. Thursday night.

They located the vehicle in question driving in the area and initiated a traffic stop.

It was during that stop that the suspect, a 26-year-old woman, took off on foot causing a short foot pursuit.

She was taken to the hospital and while en route she began to overdose and was given Narcan.
