HUNTINGBURG — A Holland woman went to jail Sunday evening after allegedly being found with drugs during a traffic stop.

A Huntingburg Police Department officer stopped a Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck in the 1700 block of Chestnut Street at 4:15 p.m. after noticing that the front-seat passenger, Jessica J. Fulkerson, 25, 402 E. Jefferson St., Holland, was not wearing a seat belt.

During the traffic stop, police said, Huntingburg K-9 Ester showed a positive alert in the passenger-door area. Items found during a search included a pipe with burnt residue and a clear tube with a crystal rock substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine.

After investigating, authorities booked Fulkerson into the Dubois County Security Center at 7:25 p.m. on preliminary charges that included a Level 6 felony count of possession of methamphetamine and a misdemeanor count of possession of paraphernalia.

Police also indicated the truck’s driver, whose full identifying information was not immediately available, would be cited into court on a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana.
