A 28-year-old Houston woman was arrested and taken to the Texas County Jail after a traffic stop at about 7:05 p.m. June 2.
An officer made the stop after observing expired license plates on the 1993 Chevrolet pickup the woman was driving southbound on Grand Avenue.
After making contact with the woman, the officer observed that she was shaking badly. When the woman was asked to empty her pockets, a syringe fell on the ground. The woman gave the officer permission to search the truck and Xanax was found.
The report was to be sent to the Texas County prosecuting attorney for charges of possession of a controlled substance, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, failure to register a motor vehicle and no insurance.
