A young Waldport woman was pulled over early Monday morning after a sheriff’s deputy said she failed to use her turn signal at SW Maple and Highway 101. Upon contact, the deputy asked driver Sabrina McCoy if he could search her vehicle. The deputy said she gave permission. A short while later the deputy found methamphetamine and related drug paraphrenalia.
McCoy was immediately arrested on a charge of unlawful possession of meth and transported to the Lincoln County Jail where she was being held on $50,000 bail. Law enforcement say poor driving habits often give away drug users and transporters of illegal drugs within and between states. They say speeding, not using turn signals, unsafe vehicle movements and driving with defective head or tail lights can be giveaways that there are drugs aboard.
