YORKVILLE – A Milwaukee driver and two passengers were charged with various drug-related offenses following a Friday traffic stop on Interstate 94/41 here.

According to the criminal complaint, a Racine County Sheriff’s deputy stopped Macon’s vehicle for speeding southbound. The front seat passenger was Tequila T. Jones, 20, of Milwaukee. The back seat passenger was Jquan Willaby, 25, of Milwaukee.
