Two Sedalia residents were arrested after a traffic stop last Friday in Moniteau County.

Deputies conducted a traffic stop on U.S. 50 just east of Tipton on a vehicle with no taillights, according to Moniteau County Sheriff's Department reports.

The deputy walked up to the car and reportedly saw a man, later identified as Steven Bartlett, 42, of Sedalia, in the back seat place his hands under a blanket out of view. The deputy ordered Bartlett to place his hands where he could see them. Bartlett refused, and the deputy called for assistance. Again the deputy ordered Bartlett to show him his hands in and he still would not comply. The deputy then drew his weapon and ordered Bartlett out of the vehicle at gunpoint. Bartlett exited the vehicle, and the deputy took a large knife from Bartlett.

Bartlett was found to have an outstanding felony warrant out of Johnson County for possession of a controlled substance. That led deputies to search the vehicle, reportedly locating marijuana and methamphetamine.

Also arrested was Shannon Demshick, 48, of Sedalia, for possession of a controlled substance.
