WFPD Traffic Stop Leads to the Arrest of Three on Narcotic Charges

Early this morning at approximately 12:30 am officers with the Wichita Falls Police Department observed a tan 2006 Chevrolet Silverado with expired registration in the area of Kell and Taft.  Officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop at which time the driver refused to stop.

As the vehicle was near Harrison and Kell officers observed a clear plastic bag being thrown from the vehicle.  Officers were eventually able to get the vehicle stopped in the area of Brook and Kell.  Officers identified the driver as 38 year old Kristin Martin and the two other occupants as 29 year old Amanda Carroll and 31 year old Andrew Carroll.

Officers went back to retrieve the bag that was thrown from the vehicle and found it to contain a substance that showed positive for methamphetamine when field tested.  The weight of the substance was 14.88 grams.

All three suspects were arrested and transported to the Wichita County jail where they were charged with possession of a substance in penalty group one and tampering with evidence.  Martin was also charged with evading.
