— Two women face felony drug possession charges after a traffic stop Tuesday night.

A Colorado State Patrol trooper was patrolling on U.S. Highway 40 in Steamboat Springs when the trooper passed a Jeep Cherokee that had dirt on the license plate; neither of the vehicle’s tail lamps were on.

The trooper stopped the car. Inside were Kelsey L. Peters, 19, and Allyson R. Rodriguez, 22.

According to an arrest affidavit, the trooper smelled alcohol and marijuana coming from the car. The trooper asked Peters if there was anything in the car he needed to know about.

“Peters started acting more nervous and talking incoherently,” the trooper wrote in the affidavit. “Peters said she feels like something she drank might have been ‘spiked.'”

The troopers searched Peters’ backpack, and among the items found were three foil wraps containing crystal meth, the affidavit stated.

When the trooper searched the purse belonging to Rodriguez, he found a foil wrap with crystal meth and two meth pipes wrapped in bandanas, the affidavit stated.

Peters was arrested on suspicion of felony possession of a controlled substance, minor in possession of alcohol, minor in possession of marijuana and minor in possession of paraphernalia.

Rodriguez was arrested on suspicion of felony possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, open alcohol beverage container, defective brake light and for having a license plate that was not visible.
