A Casper woman was arrested on the morning of February 3rd, after police say that they observed the suspect driving a car, while on a suspended license. During a subsequent investigation, police report the woman was in possession of suspected methamphetamine.

An affidavit in the case says that Priscilla Ann Sexton was arrested just before 10:00 am, Sunday. She faces recommended charges including Driving While Under Suspension and Possession of Methamphetamine.

Officers say that they observed Sexton driving in the area of North Poplar Street and English Avenue, in a Honda Civic. Police recognized Sexton, and say that they knew her to have a suspended driver’s license.

The vehicle headed southbound on Poplar Street, stopping at a gas station near Midwest Avenue. Police say that they observed Sexton exit the vehicle and change places with a passenger in the rear of the car.

Police say that the vehicle then left the the parking lot and failed to stop before entering the roadway. Police initiated a stop a short distance later.

The affidavit says that officers made contact with Sexton who initially denied driving, but later admitted to driving and having a suspended license. She further explained that she had seen officers, and changed drivers because she did not want to get in trouble.

Sexton was subsequently arrested. During transport to the Natrona County Detention Center, officers say that Sexton admitted to having contraband on her person.

A subsequent search of Sexton found two needles, several plastic jeweler’s bags, a small container with suspected methamphetamine residue, and a small baggie with suspected methamphetamine inside.

Sexton was then booked into the detention center without further reported incident.

All of those cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Charges are subject to change following official filings from the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office.
