Minden Police discovered more than 30 pills inside a vehicle from a woman who reportedly did not have a prescription for them.
Margie M. Wiltheis, 44, of the 100 block of High Street, was arrested for possession of schedule IV controlled dangerous substance (alprazolam) and driving under suspension.
Police Chief Steve Cropper said around 1 a.m., Monday, officers conducted the traffic stop on Shreveport Road.
“The officer knew from previous dealings with Wiltheis that she was driving under suspension,” the chief said.
The officers received consent to search the vehicle and discovered one pill in the driver’s seat, three pills underneath the driver’s seat and 36 pills in a bottle inside her purse, according to the police report. The chief said all the pills were suspected to be alpazolam and she did not have a prescription for them.
She was taken into custody and transported to police headquarters. Once booked, she was transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
