Bowie County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Chris Allison arrested a woman with $30,000 worth of methamphetamine early Saturday morning.
According to Bowie County Chief Deputy Jeff Neal Sergeant Allison was patrolling W. 7th Street near Kings Highway when he observed a 2013 white Chevrolet pickup commit a traffic violation.
“Sergeant Allison conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle in the 6400 Block of West 7th at which time he made contact with the driver who was identified as Sonya Notta Littles,” said Neal. “Littles was accompanied with a white male acquaintance and her small child. During the course of the traffic stop and investigation, Sergeant Allison became suspicious of the possibility of narcotics inside the vehicle.”
According to Neal, Allison used his canine partner Barry to conduct a free air sniff around the exterior of the vehicle that Littles was operating.
“Barry gave a positive response to finding the odor of narcotics. A subsequent search by Sergeant Allison produced eight bags of methamphetamine and over $9,000.00 in U.S. currency,” according to Neal.
Littles was arrested for possession of a controlled substance over 200 grams and under 400 grams then transported to the Bi-State Justice Building and booked into jail.
