An Omaha woman found with drugs during a traffic stop in Fort Calhoun accepted a plea agreement Tuesday in Washington County District Court.
Latara I. Johnson, 28, pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance, a Class 4 felony. She could face up to two years in prison, nine to 12 months post-release supervision and up to a $10,000 fine. The state is recommending probation.
Judge John E. Samson ordered a substance abuse evaluation and a presentence investigation. Sentencing is set for Sept. 24.
According to an arrest affidavit, a Washington County sheriff's deputy on patrol May 31 in Fort Calhoun witnessed a Buick sedan driving northbound on 14th Street faster than the posted speed limit.
During the traffic stop, another deputy used a K9 to sniff around the vehicle. The dog indicated there were drugs in the car.
Washington County dispatch informed deputies Johnson was wanted on a felony warrant in Iowa. When deputies searched Johnson, they found a folded dollar bill with methamphetamine in it in her bra.
A second folded dollar bill was found inside the vehicle. Johnson told deputies that dollar bill contained crack.
Johnson also informed deputies she had a cigarette laced with PCP. Those were retrieved during a search at the Washington County Jail.
