  • Failing to buckle a seat belt turned out to be not such a wise move for one Phillips County woman, according to an incident report filed with the Phillips County Sheriff's Office. According to the report, on Dec. 12, PSCO Deputy Jeremy Bramlet made a routine traffic stop of a white Chevrolet Cavalier. Bramlet reported that the driver of the vehicle, identified as Amy Stanberry, was not wearing a seat belt at the time she was stopped. Bramlet ran a check on Stanberry's driver's license and it turned up that her license had been suspended. The report stated that Deputy William Bender arrived at the scene and ran the department's canine, Thor, around the car. Thor reacted to drugs being in the vehicle. Bramlet asked Stanberry if she had any drugs or narcotics in the vehicle. The report said that Stanberry proceeded to hand the deputy a glass pipe wrapped in toilet paper with what appeared to be crystal meth residue in the pipe. Bender searched the vehicle and inside the dashboard inside an air vent, found a small, black lipstick case containing two clear plastic baggies of a rock-like substance. The deputies took Stanberry in custody. Stanberry was cited for possession of crystal meth and possession of drug paraphernalia. Lt. Sylvester Rose field-tested the white rock-like substance, which tested positive for crystal meth. Stanberry was released.
