After appearing to have swapped seats with her passenger while their vehicle was in motion last Tuesday, a Grenada woman was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and two hypodermic syringes, the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Dulcie Powell, 31, of Montague was pulled over for a seatbelt violation at approximately 9:15 a.m. on Aug. 6, the Sheriff’s Office said, on Siskiyou Boulevard in Grenada.

Prior to the enforcement stop it appeared to Deputy Rob Stewart that the original driver, an adult male from Grenada, and Powell switched positions in the vehicle while the van was traveling 25 to 30 miles per hour.

Powell turned onto 2nd Street and parked the van, where both she and the passenger were detained for a seat belt violation, the Sheriff’s Office reported. Both occupants were checked for appropriate driver’s license credentials.

The man was cited for operating a motor vehicle upon a highway while unlicensed. Powell was booked into Siskiyou County Jail for possession of approximately 3.5 grams of methamphetamine and for possessing two hypodermic syringes, one with a liquid substance believed to be methamphetamine, ready for injection, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Siskiyou County Sheriff Jon Lopey said his deputies have increased patrols in the Grenada area and “have been on the lookout for traffic and other law violations.”
