Woman a meth suspect
An Anaheim, Calif., woman was arrested Saturday on suspicion she possessed methamphetamine during a traffic stop on Interstate 70, the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department reported.
Lucia Esquivel, 24, also was jailed on suspicion she possessed drug paraphernalia after deputies pulled over a vehicle she was riding in for a traffic violation near Palisade.
According to an arrest affidavit, deputies asked the driver, Esquivel’s wife, if there were any drugs or weapons in the car. After denying that there were, he invited deputies to search the vehicle. Deputies then found two glass smoking pipes.
