BAXTER COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

A traffic stop for expired tags led to a woman facing multiple felony charges.

Early Monday morning, a Baxter County sheriff’s deputy stopped Connie Renee Williams, 32, of Midway for driving with an expired vehicle license.

Williams could not produce a driver’s license, according to a statement from Sheriff John Montgomery.

Corporal Rockie Morrell then learned that Williams had a suspended driver’s license, as well as outstanding arrest warrants for failure to appear.

Morrell arrested Williams then searched her vehicle.

“During a search of the vehicle, Corporal Morrell found approximately 0.4 grams of methamphetamine, 25 acetaminophen/propoxyphene tablets, and various items of drug paraphernalia,” Montgomery said.

Morrell took Williams to the Baxter County Detention Center and booked her on suspicion of the following:

  • Failure to appear-two outstanding warrants
  • Possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine)-felony
  • Possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance-misdemeanor
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia-felony
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia-misdemeanor
  • Driving while license suspended-misdemeanor
  • Expired vehicle license-misdemeanor

Williams remains in custody in lieu of a $6,220 bond awaiting an appearance in Circuit Court on April 27.
