From Local Sources
JASPER — A woman was taken to jail after a Saturday night traffic stop over a missing taillight.
The Jasper Police Department stopped a brown Chrysler driven by Heather R. Kavanaugh, 40, 4370 Beth Lane, Jasper, at 9:09 p.mm. at 14th and Newton streets.
Police allege Kavanaugh false-informed the officer of her name. That officer was able to make a positive identification on Kavanaugh and also learned she had an outstanding warrant.
During the stop, police also learned the plates on the vehicle were false and fictitious. A search of the vehicle was conducted, during which officers reported locating methamphetamine, a controlled substance, marijuana and paraphernalia.
Authorities booked Kavanaugh into the Dubois County Security Center at 11:30 p.m. on the active warrant and on new preliminary local charges that included Level 6 felony methamphetamine possession and misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia and refusal to identify.
