What started out with a traffic stop for tailgating ended with an arrest on drug distribution in jail for a Spanish Fork woman.
A Utah County sheriff's deputy observed the 24-year-old woman driving too close to the car in front of her Friday, a probable cause statement filed in 4th District Court stated. The deputy said in court papers that when he pulled the woman over, she appeared nervous, and he could smell marijuana in the car.
A drug-sniffing dog was called in, and indicated that there were possibly drugs in the front seat of the car. The deputy reported finding six amphetamine pills in a plastic cigarette wrapper in the woman's purse. The woman said they belonged to her daughter.
