(DUBOIS CO.) - A traffic stop for speeding ended with a Boonville woman being jailed for an outstanding warrant and drug charges.

At 2 p.m. Friday, Master Trooper Brian LaRoche stopped a vehicle for speeding along Interstate 64 at the 62 mile marker, near the Ferdinand exit.

While speaking with the driver, LaRoche noticed that the front seat passenger was very nervous. After obtaining identifications from both occupants, LaRoche found that the passenger, 30-year-old Kayla B. Towery, of Boonville, was wanted on a warrant through Warrick County for failing to appear for a theft and forgery charge.

After Towery was placed into custody, LaRoche checked Towery's purse for weapons and illegal items. He found a spoon, a syringe, empty Suboxone (Schedule III controlled substance) packages, and a plastic bag containing a clear rock-like substance that field tested positive for meth. Towery was transported to and lodged in the Dubois County Security Center on the outstanding warrant and charges of possession of meth, possession of a syringe and possession of drug paraphernalia.
