BLOOMINGTON — An Indiana woman is charged with meth trafficking and several weapons offenses following a traffic stop by a McLean County sheriff’s deputy.
Misty Mobley, 42, of South Bend was stopped Wednesday for having an obstructed windshield as she traveled south on Interstate 55 north of McLean.
During a search of the vehicle, police found a loaded .38-caliber weapon next to the driver, 4 grams of meth and about $10,000 cash, according to a statement read in court by Assistant State’s Attorney Jeff Horve.
Several hundred plastic bags and a scale that are commonly used in drug transactions also were found in the vehicle, said Horve.
Mobley is charged with armed violence, meth trafficking, possession of meth with intent to deliver the drug, aggravated unlawful use of weapons and unlawful possession of a firearm without a valid firearm owner’s identification card.
In her statement to police, Mobley denied any knowledge of the drugs and claimed she was on her way to purchase a truck with $8,800. She admitted that the bags belonged to her, said a police report.
Bond was set at $500,000, meaning Mobley must post $50,035 to be released.
