A Jefferson woman was arrested on drug charges early Saturday after her vehicle was allegedly observed by law enforcement being operated erratically.
Farrah Sue Acosta, 30, of 307 N. Olive St., Jefferson, was charged with controlled substance violation, failure to affix drug stamp, unlawful possession of prescription drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving while barred.
The incident began about 2 a.m. Saturday in the 25000 block of Iowa Highway 141 near Woodward, where a Dallas County Deputy Sheriff initiated a traffic stop on a 2007 Nissan Altima, driven by Acosta.
According to court records, the deputy determined Acosta was driving while barred, and she was placed under arrest.
Acosta requested permission to bring along her coat and purse. A search of the property at the Dallas County Jail allegedly disclosed “methamphetamine, baggies, scale, controlled prescription medication and pipe,” according to court records.
Acosta is held in the Dallas County Jail in advance of an initial appearance in Dallas County District Court.
Acosta was convicted of first-offense possession of a controlled substance-cannabidiol in June in Boone County District Court.
