Arnold Police arrested a 39-year-old St. Louis woman and a 37-year-old St. Louis man for alleged possession of drugs following a traffic stop. The woman allegedly was found with methamphetamine, and the man allegedly was found with marijuana, police reported.
Officers spotted the man driving a 2008 GMC Envoy at about 12:45 p.m. July 2 in the 1900 block of During Drive and recognized him as someone wanted on numerous outstanding warrants, the report said.
After pulling over the SUV, officers allegedly found a small, metal pipe and a bag with a plant-like material believed to be marijuana in the man’s lap. In addition, officers allegedly found the woman with a pink and purple bag and inside it two pipes that had burnt residue on them, according to the report.
The man was wanted on two warrants from Arnold Police for possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana and from St. Louis County Police for driving with an invalid license. The two were arrested and transported to the Police Station, where the woman was found with a leather-style necklace with an attached metal container that was filled with a crystal-like substance believed to be meth, the report said.
The man was booked and held on the warrants, and the woman was booked and then released pending application for warrants. Depending on the drug analysis, Arnold Police will week charges through the Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office against the woman for possession of meth and drug paraphernalia and against the man for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, Lt. Clinton Wooldridge said.
