An Iowa woman who was recently sentenced for possessing fraudulent checks is now wanted on a drug charge in Washington County.

Elizabeth A. Chapman, 48, is charged with possession of a controlled substance, a Class 4 felony.

A warrant for her arrest was issued March 18.

Chapman was arrested Jan. 18 following a traffic stop on state Highway 133. She had multiple confirmed warrants.

After Chapman was transported to the Washington County Jail, a deputy searched her purse. He found four syringes with what Chapman said was her blood, a container with marijuana less than an ounce and another container with a chunky gray and white powder.

That container was sent to the Nebraska State Patrol Crime Lab where it was confirmed to be methamphetamine.

Chapman was sentenced to 45 days in jail with 45 days served on March 5 for possession of a forged instrument, a Class 1 misdemeanor. That charge related to several stolen checks Chapman had in her possession at the time of her arrest Jan. 18.
