Passenger in traffic stop admits to having meth after K9 unit brought in

29-year-old Kayla Walsh was charged with unlawful drug paraphernalia and possession of methamphetamine after she was found to have a container sticking out of her pocket with a crystal-like substance inside of it.

On September 30th, Stewart County Sheriff’s Deputy Page spotted a black SUV cross over the outer white traffic line twice. He pulled the vehicle over and made contact with the driver, who stated her tire was low and that is why she could not remain inside of the line. Deputy Page noticed the smell of marijuana emitting from the vehicle and called in K9 Deputy Shane Keatts. The police service dog detected the odor of narcotics within the vehicle, giving probable cause for a search.

She pulled out a red container that she confessed had methamphetamine and admitted the container was hers.
