A Harker Heights woman who police said was found with more than five grams of methamphetamine during a routine traffic stop was arraigned in Killeen.
Kristy Danyelle Treat, 30, is charged with possession of a controlled substance of four grams or more but less than 200 grams, a second-degree felony punishable by 2 to 20 years in prison. She was arrested Monday near the corner of 10th Street and Hallmark Avenue in Killeen.
A Killeen police officer patrolling the area of 10th Street and Hallmark Avenue on Monday noticed a green Dodge pickup with an unlit driver’s side tail lamp who failed to signal to turn. The officer conducted the traffic stop and Treat, who was in the passenger seat, was identified as the vehicle owner, the affidavit said.
After Treat gave consent to search the vehicle, police found a black case container with a clear glass vial containing a white crystal-type substance and large white crystal rocks believed to be methamphetamine. After being read her rights, Treat confirmed the substance was methamphetamine and it belonged to her, police said.
A further search of the vehicle revealed other drug paraphernalia including syringes, digital scale, lighter and spoon. A field test of the substance inside the vial tested positive as methamphetamine with a weight of 5.5 grams.
Treat was in Bell County Jail Wednesday on $50,000 bond.
In an unrelated case, Justin Ray James was arraigned Monday night on a charge of evading arrest with a motor vehicle. James, 31, was arrested Monday after police said he evaded arrest. He is in Bell County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
