On Wednesday, Sept. 18, a deputy initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle for speeding outside the town of Esparto. The driver of the vehicle failed to yield, leading the deputy on an approximate 5-mile-long pursuit. During the pursuit items were thrown out the driver’s window that was later determined to be baggies containing methamphetamine and heroin. After the vehicle stopped, the driver was ordered to exit the vehicle and was identified as Armida Contreras, 55, of Winters. A search of the vehicle revealed additional methamphetamine and heroin. Contreras was arrested and booked into the Yolo County Jail for possession for sale and transportation for sale of methamphetamine and heroin, destruction of evidence and evading. An approximate of 94 grams of heroin and 101 grams of methamphetamine was seized.
Correction: In a previous version of this article, Contreras was identified as a man. ]]>
