Speeding Driver Arrested for Possession of Several Types of Illegal DrugsSalem-News.com
Police say that up to eight different illegal substances were located after the 19-year old consented to a search of her car.
(SALEM) - A construction zone speed-related traffic stop early Friday morning on Interstate 5 in Salem led to the arrest of a 19-year old Roseburg woman on numerous drug charges.
Friday morning at approximately 1:15 AM, Oregon State Police Senior Trooper Joseph Delgreco stopped a northbound 2003 Volkswagon Jetta on Interstate 5 near milepost 256, for traveling 78 mph in a 50 mph work zone area.
At the conclusion of the stop the driver, 19-year old Brinton Cook of Roseburg, consented to a search of her vehicle.
While looking in the car's trunk, "Reggie" alerted to a safe. Upon opening the safe, Senior Trooper Delgreco says he discovered the following:
* approximately 13 ounces of Marijuana
Cook was taken into custody and transported to Marion County Jail where she was lodged on numerous drug related charges involving Unlawful Possession, Distribution and Manufacturing of a Controlled Substance for a total of 14 total counts.
Many believe that youngsters caught using drugs need teen drug abuse treatment, not lengthy jail sentences. The courts may not agree.
Assistance during the stop provided by OSP Sergeant Dale Young, OSP Recruit Hinkle, and Salem PD Office Adam Miller.
