On the above date and time, I, DS Harper, conducted a traffic stop at the above location. While traveling W on W HWY 16, I observed the Black Suburban in front of me was driving unreasonably close to the truck in front of it. They were braking frequently and kept having to do so in order to avoid colliding with the truck. I activated my emergency equipment and advised dispatch that I was initiating a traffic stop.

I met with the driver, Skylar Saunders, through the passenger window. Her speech was rushed, she was breathing hard, and she was visibly shaking throughout her whole body. Her eyes were wide and she immediately went into a narrative about her adopted grandfather believing her to be missing.

I asked her to exit the vehicle and wait with me at the front of my patrol car while I wrote her a warning. While writing her the warning, she continued to shake and provide nervous answers. I asked if there were any firearms or drugs in the vehicle, to which she replied, “no”. I asked for her consent to search the vehicle, which she granted.

During the search, I retrieved the wallet from which she drew her ID at the beginning of the stop. Inside that wallet, I found a small clear bag containing a white powder and another clear bag containing dirty, white pills. There were strips of burnt aluminum foil throughout the entire vehicle. I detained Skylar and advised her of the Miranda Warning.

After waiving the rights and consenting to questioning, she advised that the pills were Trazodone, which she does not have a prescription for. She stated that the pills belong to her boss. She stated that the powder belonged to someone else, and she referred to it as a “downer”. I did not conduct a field test on the powder given the dangerous nature of it potentially being Fentanyl.

I arrested Skylar for the two substances and placed her in the backseat of my patrol car. Charlie’s Towing arrived and towed the vehicle to their lot (inventory conducted). I transported her to the jail without incident. The suspected Fentanyl and Trazodone were placed into evidence locker 010 at the Coweta CO Sheriff’s Office.
