A traffic stop in north Iowa Monday night has led to the arrest of a Minnesota woman on drug charges.
The Bremer County Sheriff’s Office says deputies pulled over a car driven by 30-year-old Samantha Potter of Lyle, Minnesota at about 7 p.m. for doing 87 miles per hour in a 65 mile per hour zone on Highway 218 in Bremer County. Upon further investigation, it was learned Potter’s driver’s license had been revoked.
When officers informed Potter a police K9 would search the vehicle for drugs, Potter told officials a male passenger in the vehicle might have marijuana. The passenger surrendered a drug pipe and some marijuana, leading to the K9 search and the discovery of over 45 grams of methamphetamine in plastic baggies, plus a digital scale in Potter’s purse.
Potter has been charged with possession with intent to deliver over 5g but less than 5kg of methamphetamine, a Class B Felony, failure to affix drug tax stamp, a Class D felony and possession of drug paraphernalia, a simple misdemeanor. Potter’s bond was set at $30,000.
