A 37-year-old Duncanville woman was in the Bell County Jail on Monday after Killeen police said they found more than 5 ounces of methamphetamine during a traffic stop.

Adell Torres Flores was charged with possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams. Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin arraigned Flores on Saturday, setting bail at $50,000.

Police arrested Flores after receiving information from a "reliable source" that a driver was the way to Killeen from Dallas to negotiate a drug transaction, according to an arrest affidavit.

On Friday, a police officer saw a car matching the description traveling near the 1100 block of South Fort Hood Street. The driver failed to use a signal twice when turning onto Central Texas Expressway and merging onto U.S. Highway 190.

The officer stopped the vehicle and called a narcotics dog out to the scene. Authorities searched the car after the dog issued an alert.

Police officers found a plastic bag under the front passenger seat containing a substance that field-tested positive as methamphetamine. The bag contained 147 grams of suspected methamphetamine, with a street value of between $8,000 and $11,000.

In the arrest affidvit, a police officer reported that the driver of the car, Flores, later admitted the methamphetamine was hers and that she intended to sell it in Killeen.
