A Flagstaff traffic stop ended in a drug bust last week.
According to the police report, an officer pulled over a vehicle in the 2400 block of North West Street after it stopped at an intersection without a stop sign at about 12:15 p.m. last Tuesday. While the suspect was struggling with a field sobriety test, an Arizona Department of Public Safety trooper arrived with his K-9. The dog signaled that there were drugs in the vehicle.
Officers then searched the vehicle. Inside, they found a pouch containing dozens of individual-sized packages totaling more than 40 grams of methamphetamine, multiple individual-sized containers totaling about 3.5 grams of heroin, approximately 0.7 grams of marijuana, a syringe containing an unidentified clear liquid and a scale with drug residue.
Kristin Marie Robledo, 34, was arrested and charged with a long list of drug-related crimes, including possession of narcotic drugs for sale and transportation of narcotic drugs. She was booked into the Coconino County Detention Facility. Police are awaiting lab results to determine whether a DUI charge should be added.
