Over the weekend, the La Paz County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Task Force arrested a woman in Ehrenberg for transportation of dangerous drugs for sale.
The Task Force was assisting patrol officers Sunday on a special detail for Memorial Day weekend when a traffic stop by a sheriff’s sergeant on patrol in Ehrenberg led to the arrest. At approximately 3pm, detectives stopped to assist the sergeant at the traffic stop. During the stop, the Sheriff’s Office says the operator of the vehicle was acting nervously, so a U.S. Border Patrol Agent and K-9 unit was requested to assist.
The canine ‘alerted’ on the vehicle, leading to a search of the vehicle and its driver, Cynthia Williams (pictured). The Sheriff’s Office says the search located 2 ounces of methamphetamine which the Task Force suspect were purchased in the Blythe, CA area for distribution in Parker and the CRIT Valley.
Williams was arrested and transported to the La Paz County Detention Facility where she is being held on $25,000 bond and is to be considered innocent until proven guilty in court.
