DEERFIELD — A traffic stop for darkly tinted windows led to a cocaine bust.

Malissa Burnor, 26, from Colchester, Vt., and Stephon Dawson, 29, of Springfield were arrested on trafficking cocaine, conspiring to break drug laws, and drug possession early Monday morning. In addition, Burnor was charged with excessive window tint, tire tread depth, and unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.
