Comments Off on Bartlesville woman arrested after traffic stop uncovers meth

BARTLESVILLE, Okla. – A traffic stop Thursday resulted in the arrest of a Bartlesville woman after authorities found suspected methamphetamine under her seat.

28-year-old Michele L. Beeman faces a charge of possession of a controlled dangerous substance.

During her hearing held Friday in Washington County District Court the judge set her bond at $15,000.

According to the affidavit, shortly after midnight an investigator with the 11th Judicial Drug Task Force stopped a vehicle at the intersection of 1600 Road and Virginia Avenue.

As he spoke with the driver of the vehicle, Beeman in the front passenger seat began moving items around on the passenger-side floorboard and continued moving them when asked to step outside to speak to another officer on scene at her door, said the report.

Learning she had outstanding warrants out of Washington County with a bond of $15,000, officers arrested her and seated her in a patrol car.

Officials then searched the vehicle and found a box of pseudoephedrine bearing allergy medicine, a cellophane wrapper containing pseudoephedrine pills, a bottle containing two baggies of a white powder that later tested positive for methamphetamine under the passenger seat.

Also found under the seat was a can of camping fuel, commonly used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

Beeman is due back in court on July 15.
