Lincoln drug investigators arrested five people following the discovery of nearly two ounces of methamphetamine in a car and a mobile home Monday, a police department spokeswoman said. 

Just before 7 p.m., an officer stopped a car near 40th and Adams streets for failing to stop at a stop sign. While speaking to a passenger, the officer saw a baggie of suspected meth, Officer Angela Sands said. 

Police found over an ounce of meth in the car and arrested the three occupants, identified as 25-year-old Sierra Barrett, 44-year-old Jon Hillman and 34-year-old Amber Slapnicka, Sands said.

All three were taken to jail on suspicion of drug-dealing offenses.

They later searched a mobile home at 3700 Cornhusker Highway related to that investigation and found about another ounce of meth as well as over $5,000 in suspected drug money and scales, Sands said. 

The residents, Debra and David Scott, were arrested and taken to jail on suspicion of possession with intent to deliver and possession of drug money.
