An Elko County sheriff’s deputy pulled over George A. Smith, 24, of Elko, Undersheriff Clair Morris said.

The deputy recognized the passenger — Jennifer Stanger, 29, of Elko — and knew she had a warrant, Morris said.

She in fact had two bench warrants, both for failure to appear and being in contempt of court.

When Stanger got out of the car, she reportedly told the deputy she had drugs down her pants. She then pulled out about 2.6 grams of methamphetamine, Morris said.

Stanger was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and on two bench warrants. Her bail was listed at $35,000.

Smith was booked on traffic charges. He was arrested for driving with a suspended driver’s license, operator proof of insurance required, and rear license plate lamp violation. His bail was listed at $1,210.
