A woman who was on felony pretrial release for a 2017 criminal mischief case was arrested after police conducted a traffic stop and found drugs.
Valene Joy Castro Cruz, 25, was charged with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance as a third-degree felony, along with a notice of felony committed while on felony release.
According to court documents, police stopped the suspect's car after a check showed that the license plates did not match the vehicle.
During a search of the car, officers found a glass pipe with white frosty residue and two small bags with suspected methamphetamine, documents state.
The suspect allegedly admitted to authorities that she just got the drugs prior to being pulled over.
