A man and a woman were arrested for felony possession of methamphetamine following a routine traffic stop on the afternoon of Oct. 9 at the intersection of 12th and Main streets.
Steven Weaver, 31, of Windsor, was arrested for unlawful possession of meth, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Miranda Hart, 26, who was driving a silver Volvo sedan and is listed in the police report as homeless, was arrested for unlawful possession of meth of less than 1 ounce, and for displaying fictitious license plates.
According to the police report, police observed the Volvo parked in the 200 block of 10th Street at around 1:28 p.m. The expiration sticker of July 2014 appeared to have been cut down the center. Clearance of the vehicle showed that the license plate was listed to the vehicle, but the license plate actually expired on July 2013.
Police conducted a traffic stop as the car was traveling westbound on Main Street. Hart told police that her soon-to-be ex-husband put the fictitious tags on her vehicle.
A search of the vehicle was conducted and police located a prescription bottle for 100 mg of sertraline tablets with Hart’s name on it. The bottle was a little half full of a clear blue liquid. The liquid in the bottle tested positive for 30 grams of methamphetamine. Tests were also conducted on a soda can found inside the vehicle, as well as a crystalline substance in a small plastic baggie. Both tested positive for meth.
On the passenger side of the rear seat area, where Weaver was sitting, police found a nylon brief case stuffed with papers which had Weaver’s name on it. Inside the nylon bag was a plastic bag with a syringe and the bottom of an aluminum can was burned on one side, and had a crusty pink and white substance on the opposite side.
Hart and Weaver were transported to the Weld County Jail in Greeley.
A 45-year-old Windsor man was also a passenger in the car, but he was not arrested.
Windsor Police Chief John Michaels said his officer was observant by noticing the plate which led to the traffic stop.
“Very good job by the officer,” Michaels said. “Great observation by the officer for a misuse of a license plate.”
