Wilson County’s law-enforcement officers continue to make strides in hampering the transport of narcotics.

Deputy Crystal Zoeller of the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office on Nov. 3 arrested two women after finding a plethora of narcotics in their purses. This occurred after Zoeller spotted a speeding vehicle traveling northbound on U.S. 181 north of Poth at approximately 1:39 a.m.

According to Zoeller’s report, the driver -- Sandra K. Krueger-Pollok, 48, of Falls City -- allegedly was driving 55 mph in a 45 mph zone, which prompted the deputy to initiate a traffic stop. Once she approached the vehicle, Zoeller noticed that Krueger-Pollok’s passenger, 25-year-old Ashley Nicole Porter, exhibited hysterical behavior consistent with someone under the influence of drugs.

After the driver gave consent to search the vehicle, Zoeller found prescription drugs including Ibuprofen, Alprazolam, and Lexapro in Krueger-Pollok’s purse. None of the drugs was prescribed to the driver, according to the report. In Porter’s purse, in addition to 10 different prescription drugs not belonging to her, Zoeller reported finding 12 hypodermic needles containing a brown residue, 1.1 grams of crystallized methamphetamine, and $1,100 cash, with a receipt indicating it was withdrawn five days before from her Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union account.

Both women were arrested and transported to the Wilson County Jail. Krueger-Pollok was charged with two counts of possession of a dangerous drug, and possession of less than 28 grams of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 3. Jail records indicate she was released after posting a total of $10,000 bond.

Porter was charged with seven counts of possession of a dangerous drug, and one count each of:

•Possession of less than 28 grams of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 3

•Possession of less than 1 gram of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1

•Possession of more than 1 gram, but less than 4 grams, of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1

•Possession of more than 4 grams, but less than 200 grams, of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1.

Porter was released Nov. 7, after posting $29,600 bond.

In an unrelated incident, Patrolman Matthew Redd of the Floresville Police Department on Nov. 9 intercepted a load of methamphetamine that was being transported to Austin. Arrested and charged with manufacture and delivery of more than 4 grams, but less than 200 grams, of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1, and possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana was 31-year-old Renee Lynn Rotge of Coupland. She also had an outstanding arrest warrant for possession of a controlled substance.

Redd said he conducted a traffic stop just after midnight on U.S. 181 in front of the Best Western hotel, after spotting a vehicle with an inoperable headlight. The officer said Rotge, a passenger in the vehicle, allegedly admitted to having 8-1/2 grams of methamphetamine and 13 grams of marijuana in her possession. She presented these items to Redd, and was transported to the Wilson County Jail. Records at press time Nov. 12 indicated that Rotge was being held on a total of $37,000 bond.

Patrolman Billy Herrera and Sgt. Devin Keen of the Floresville Police Department assisted Redd at the scene.
