A 34-year-old Arnold woman was arrested for alleged possession of methamphetamine and Xanax during a traffic stop. The woman was pulled over on Michigan Avenue, after an officer noticed the 2007 Honda Tiburon the woman was driving had a cover on the license plate on the rear bumper that was so dark he could not tell if it was a plate, Arnold Police reported.
The woman was stopped at about 9:45 p.m. Dec. 9. When the officer questioned the woman, she told him there was nothing illegal in the car, the report said.
The officer was partnered with a police dog, who indicated the possible presence of narcotics in the car. When the officer searched the car, he allegedly found a bag filled with a white crystal-like substance that looked like meth and a container of pills that appeared to be Xanax, according to the report.
The woman was arrested and taken to the Police Station, where she was booked and released pending application for warrants. Depending on results of the drug analysis, Arnold Police will seek charges against the woman through the Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for possession of a controlled substance, Capt. Rich Shular said.
