Traffic stop leads to drug arrest

A PUCO deputy was sitting in his patrol car at the corner of Burlingame Rd. and Stewart Rd when he noticed a Jeep Grand Cherokee with a badly cracked windshield approach the intersection and roll through the stop sign.

The deputy pulled over the driver who identified herself as Ashley Johnston, and then asked for her license, registration and insurance. Johnston gave him her ID and stated her driver's license has been suspended, but she believes it was now valid.

Then, the registration she provided to the deputy had a different name then her own, and she stated that's who she bought the car from. She was also unable to provide any proof of insurance.

When the deputy ran her license plate, it came back to a different vehicle, a 1992 Jeep and the LPN on the registration didn't match as well.
