A Kanawha County Sheriff's deputy arrested people after a traffic stop turned up a stolen vehicle.

It happened on Wednesday in the Davis Creek area, according to a news release from the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office. A 2007 Honda Accord triggered an alarm in a deputy's cruiser. The system contains a camera system that's designed to scan and check license plates with local and national databases for stolen vehicles.

The vehicle, which was reported stolen on Tuesday, was traveling north on U.S. Route 119 when it triggered the alarm. The deputy pulled over the vehicle on MacCorkle Avenue in Charleston.

Ashley Nicole Wilkinson, 24, of Cross Lanes, was driving the car. The passenger was Anthony Ross Harmon, 25, of Charleston. According to the news release, both have been charged with possession of a stolen vehicle. A second passenger, Phillip Lane Daughtery, Jr., 39, of Suwanee, Ga., was charged with joyriding, a misdemeanor.

The vehicle was reported stolen from Harmon's grandmother.
