LAKEPORT – LAKE COUNTY On Sunday morning at 11:35 a Lakeport police officer spotted a woman believed to be wanted on an outstanding warrant. With the assistance of sheriff’s deputies, they contacted her as she prepared to drive her white Ford Explorer from the Shell Station on South Main Street.
Nicole Andre Rosales, 38 of Lakeport, had an outstanding warrant for driving while her license was suspended for a previous DUI. According to the Lakeport Police, the officers confirmed the warrant status, and arrested her, placing her in the back of the police car while they continued a search of her Explorer.
Her purse, which was still in her car, contained a glass methamphetamine pipe with white meth residue inside. Adding possession of drug paraphernalia to the arrest charges, Rosales was taken to the Lake County Hill Road Correctional Facility for booking.
As she was processed at the jail, an additional custodial search of her was conducted, and she turned out have in her purse some white crystal meth, an additional metal meth pipe, and a single white pill, which turned out to be Carisoprodol, a prescription only muscle relaxant with a schedule IV (low risk of abuse) controlled substance designation. Because she failed to reveal that she had these additional narcotics when she was brought in, she was charged with both possession and bringing a controlled substance into a jail facility.
Bail for Ms. Rosales was set at $20,000. She posted bond, and her court appearance is scheduled for May 6.
