Catherine Michelle Rittell was stopped on Interstate 10 on March 14 doing 90 mph, according to the arrest report. Her vehicle’s registration had expired in 2013.

She was not able to locate the registration and “appeared very nervous and fidgety,” the report said. Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputies had seen her leaving over and hiding something.

Rittell later told deputies she’d hidden some marijuana and a small container on the passenger side of her car, according to the report. Deputies found the container with marijuana, as well as a small bag of methamphetamine and a glass bowl smoking device.

She is charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Her next scheduled court date is April 21.
