A Tulsa woman pleaded guilty Friday in Pittsburg County District Court to drug crimes she was charged with after a police K-9 found marijuana, cocaine and meth in her car.
Janet Steed, 38, pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of controlled dangerous substances (methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana).
According to court records, Pittsburg County Sheriff deputy Chris Bailey, and his K-9 police dog, were called out to a traffic stoop in Kiowa on Feb. 27.
The dog “alerted” on the back passenger door of the vehicle that had been pulled over and, after further searching, police were able to find drugs and weapons in the vehicle, a police affidavit states.
The driver, Steed, was arrested and charged with multiple criminal counts.
Although she pleaded guilty to the drug charge, charges of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and carrying weapons unlawfully were dismissed.
Steed was fined $1,450 and sentencing was deferred for five years.
