Vehicle Violation Leads to Another Possession Arrest

A local woman familiar to law enforcement was taken into custody for drug related charges following a vehicle stop early Tuesday morning.
Nevada County Sheriff Keith Royal tells KNCO that a deputy spotted a vehicle with no visible license plate and initiated a traffic stop for speeding and potential expired registration. The deputy recognized the female driver as 45 year old Michelle Meyer and was aware she did not have a valid driver’s license so ran a records check.
