Blotter: Two women arrested after traffic stop

A traffic stop early Sunday morning in the 600 block of North Interstate 35E resulted in the arrests of two women for possession of a controlled substance.

The stop was made by a Denton police officer traveling south on the service road just north of Fort Worth Drive. When the officer ran the plates of an SUV that had pulled into a motel parking lot, the insurance status of the vehicle came back as unconfirmed, according to the police report.

The driver of the vehicle told the officer that she did not have insurance and that she was visiting a friend of the other woman. The officer was granted permission to search the vehicle and found multiple prescription pills in baggies, according to the report. Additional pills were found in the driver’s wallet and another baggie was found stuffed halfway under the center console on the passenger side, the report stated.

The driver said the pills in her wallet were hers but told the officer that the pills on the passenger side were not hers, according to the report. The driver and passenger were both arrested for possession of a controlled substance.
