Off. Plyler turned on the blue lights and stopped the vehicle at the intersection of Central Avenue at Oaklawn Avenue. He approached and made contact with the driver, Megan Sharee Taylor, 26, of Jimmy Coleman Road in Mt. Ida. Ms. Taylor’s pertinents were checked through the police computer. The check revealed that her driver’s license was suspended at the time, she has numerous prior drug arrests and she had a valid search waiver on file, stemming from a prior court judgement.

Ms. Taylor was arrested and transported to the Garland County Detention Center for processing. She is charged with Felony Possession Of A Controlled Substance and traffic violation(s) with bond set at $2,500.
