A 37-year-old Byrnes Mill woman was arrested after police allegedly found synthetic marijuana and drug paraphernalia in a car she was driving. The woman was arrested during a traffic stop on Missouri State Road near Crosswinds Drive, Arnold Police reported.
At about 8:45 p.m. March 29, officers pulled over the woman, who was driving a 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix, because the car’s license plate was expired. The woman already was wanted by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office on a warrant for suspicion of driving while intoxicated, the report said.
The woman was arrested on the warrant, and a police dog was used to search the outside of the car. The dog indicated illegal substances were in the car, and officers allegedly found a metal smoking pipe, three glass smoking pipes, a syringe and a glass jar that appeared to contain synthetic marijuana, according to the report.
The woman was arrested and taken to the Police Station, where she was booked. 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 and drug paraphernalia, Cpl. Brett Ackermann said.
